Our Bible School courses are now open throughout the year for you to join us for a taster week. You may want to get a feel for student life before committing to a full course. You might want to study a certain book of the bible or a specific theological topic. Or you may just want to come and hear a particular bible teacher and be spiritually equipped for your daily life. Whatever the reason we know that your time at Capernwray will be a valuable and potentially life changing experience.

A single week of study costs £175 which includes access to all the lectures and student activities as well as full board accommodation (arrive from Sunday afternoon and depart Friday afternoon).  You can stay for a maximum of four weeks per school. If you choose to return and study on one of our main courses in the following academic year we will deduct £175 from your tuition fees.

Sponsorship for British  students…

We have received a grant that will enable us to provide 25% sponsorship to British students. If you are considering Bible School as an option, please get in touch with us. You can apply for Winter School which starts in September 2018 or Spring School starting in April 2019.



All our courses are a perfect opportunity to set aside a relatively short space of time to devote to developing your relationship with Jesus through studying the Bible. During the programme of study you will read through specific sections of the Bible as part of your daily readings. There will also be an enormous amount of teaching which covers a number of Old and New Testament books as well as specific lectures and seminars that focus on the practical side of Christian living. As many people attest this is one of the best and life transforming experiences they have had. Why not give yourself the opportunity to share in the same testimony?


The vast majority of the course will be delivered as lectures in our conference hall. The lectures last approximately 50 minutes each and there will generally be four sessions in the morning before lunch and two sessions at night after the evening meal from Monday to Thursday. On Fridays there will be a series of seminars delivered in the morning before lunch. Below is a overview of the topics and books covered during the One Year School. Please note that these titles are used as an illustration. Due to the availability of lecturers and Bible teachers the topics and titles are subject to change.


Genesis – Early life of Abraham, Deuteronomy, Joshua, 1 Samuel, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Highlights from Isaiah


Sermon on the Mount – Matthew 5-7, Luke’s Gospel, John 14-17 – Upper Room Discourse, Acts 1-12, Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Timothy, Hebrews, James, 1 John


Facing the non Christian World, Prayer, Christian Dynamics, Evangelism, The Father Heart of God, The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, World Religions, Apologetics, The Church, The Second Advent, Devotional Life, Discipleship, Counselling, Practical Theology, World Missions, Theological Questions, Authority and Inspiration of Scripture, Relationships

In addition there are a number of seminars dealing with practical aspects of the Christian life.


During your time at Capernwray you will be completing two courses of study, which largely run in parallel. One course is external and validated by NCFE. The other course leads to the award of the Capernwray Hall Bible School Certificate. These courses will be fully explained in the early days of Bible School and are fully explained in the Course Handbook, which you will receive upon arrival.

During Winter School you will be enrolled with NCFE on Capernwray Bible School’s Foundations in Christian Life and Service course and in Spring School on the Principles in Christian Life and Service course. The courses undertaken at Capernwray are accepted at some schools in North America and other countries around the world, and your portfolio of completed work will be a valuable asset to take on to any further studies. A transcript of studies is also issued at the completion of the course.

NCFE is one of the longest standing validating bodies in the UK. One of the key reasons for working alongside NCFE is the fact that we have been able to maintain the total course content and ethos – in no way has any part of our message been compromised. As part of the accreditation, we are now inspected on a regular basis by Schools Inspection Service, a nationally-appointed body. You can read there latest inspection report of Capernwray Hall here.


As part of the course assessment process every student is required to attend all lectures as these lectures provide the input for the overall assessment of the course. In total there are twelve assessed units (nine in Winter School and three in Spring School) which are generally assessed through a combination of written test or essay. Assistance and guidance on completing the assessments are provided as part of the course schedule.

    • 22 SEPT 2018 - 15 MARCH 2019
  • Spring School 2019
    • 13 APRIL - 21 JUNE 2019

All of our courses centre upon four key objectives. These objectives enable us and the students to track progress against our overall mission statement which is to proclaim the transforming presence of Jesus Christ through biblical teaching and practical training, equipping men and women for service in His Church worldwide.

  1. To come to know the risen, indwelling Lord Jesus Christ more deeply and personally
  2. To develop the personal disciplines of studying, understanding and communicating the message of the Bible
  3. To discover and prove in everyday experience the reality of the Christian life
  4. To be a more effective member of your local church and be equipped for full time Christian service
