The Winter School programme, a twenty-two week long course, gives you the opportunity to focus on your relationship with Jesus, study the Bible in depth, and practically apply it to your life. We are confident that you will leave here better equipped to live your Christian life and serve in your local church context. (A shorter Spring School course is also available. If you apply for both courses you will receive a £500 second-course discount. We also offer Taster Weeks if you would like to experience our Bible School before committing to a full programme).
The main content of the course is taught by experienced and gifted teachers, meeting four key objectives, and resulting in an internationally recognised qualification – Foundations in Christian Life and Service (Level 3). You will study as part of a wonderful international community in a stunning location with great facilities all for a great price that includes accommodation, activities and all your meals. You will be taught from a wide range of biblical books and a variety of theological topics through lectures, and there will be a number of seminars dealing with the practical aspects of the Christian life including managing your time and money, worship, teamwork, marriage and singleness. You will also have regular Route Planner sessions providing an overview of every Old Testament book which tracks your weekly Bible reading schedule. The specific topics and books covered during Winter School will likely include the following, though they are subject to change based on the availability of lecturers:
- 1 and 2 Samuel
- The Minor Prophets
- John’s Gospel
- 1 Corinthians
- Introduction to the Bible
- Personal Evangelism
- Science and Faith
- The Attributes of God
- The Church
- The Father Heart of God
- The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
- Union with Christ
- World Religions
You will get the opportunity to talk with others about what you have been learning in your Family Group and Small group Bible study.
A core part of Capernwray’s vision is to ensure that the opportunity to study God’s Word and experience His transformational presence is available to as many potential students as possible. We are therefore pleased to introduce an extensive package of financial support for those who require it.
Given the real increases in our underlying costs and a desire to ensure the long term sustainability of the ministry, it has again been necessary to increase our fees for 2024-2025. With tuition, food and accommodation all included we strongly believe Capernwray Bible Schools offer good value for money and consider the fees an investment well worth making.
If you apply for both Winter School and Spring School (two separate courses) you will receive a £500 second-course discount.
|Standard Fees||Financially Assisted Fees|
|UK Resident Sponsored Fees|
During the online application process (TOAS) there is a section addressing whether you are in a position to pay the Standard fees. At this point, if necessary, you can easily apply for the Financial Assistance Sponsorship (20% sponsorship for households unable to meet the full cost).
We also have a limited number of places set aside for students who could not otherwise afford to come in the form of a Financial Hardship Fund (up to 50% sponsorship for students otherwise unable to attend, ordinarily from lower income nations or missionary families). We specifically welcome applications from such candidates, who will have an opportunity to request access to this fund during the TOAS application process. Applications to that fund are considered by Capernwray on a case by case basis.
Please note: UK Resident Sponsored Fees (33% sponsorship for students ordinarily resident in the UK) will be automatically applied where the student is eligible. This means that UK Resident students can attend both Winter School & Spring School in 2024-25 for under £9,000 (after application of the £500 second-course discount and the 33% sponsorship), and so receive all tuition, food and accommodation, for less than just the tuition fees at the majority of British universities.
