Taster weeks are a wonderful opportunity to get a feel for student life on one of our Bible courses. You can also use them as a retreat week, or study break, and learn about a particular book of the Bible or theological topic. Bookings for 2023-2024 are now open (see below).
“I felt really blessed to attend a Taster Week. I was made to feel very welcome and it was a really special time. The lecturers were amazing and it achieved the reason for attending – to learn more about the Old Testament. Overall it was a very positive learning experience for me.” – Evelyn
For just £310, you get access to the entire teaching programme and student activities for the week, plus accommodation and all meals provided, from Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon. You can stay for a maximum of four weeks per school. If you apply to Bible School within 2 years of attending a Taster Week, we can deduct the cost of your first Taster Week from your Bible School fees.
We do not have single rooms at Capernwray so you are likely to be sharing an ensuite bedroom. If you wish to have a room to yourself there is a £50 supplement.
Guests from certain countries may need to obtain a Visitor Visa before travel to the UK. You can check the visa requirements here.
We can accept 16 and 17 year olds to join us for our Taster Weeks provided that they are accompanied for the week by at least one parent, who will retain full responsibility for their child’s behaviour and safety. There is a discount of 25% for the first accompanying parent.
