It’s vital for students to put the training and equipping they receive at Bible school into practice. So we give all students the opportunity to participate in outreach activities.
There are opportunities in prison ministry, senior citizens centres, Sunday schools, youth groups, open air work, school assemblies, classes and Christian unions, practical, social work and much, much more. We have great relationships with many local churches and often partner with their ministries. Student teams also sometimes conduct their services.
We have sporting outreach opportunities where students enter teams into local Sportsreach football and netball leagues. These are great to meet people from the local community and take part in a gospel focussed mission.
There is an Outreach Placement Week during the second term of Winter School in which all students work with several UK churches, and there are opportunities for national and international missions. There are also a number of outreach events that are held at Capernwray throughout the year including our Christmas Presentation and Open Day.
Mission opportunities with OM
As two ministries motivated by mission, and with an association over many years, Capernwray and Operation Mobilisation (OM) are thrilled to be building even stronger links. Matthew Skirton (OM’s UK Chief Executive) teaches on mission at each Bible School. We are delighted to promote OM’s short-term global mission opportunities to our students, for those who want to move on from Capernwray to Live out Love in imaginative ways.
