The Winter School programme, a 22-week long course and first stage of the One Year School, 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. (Shorter Spring School and Taster Week courses are also available).
The main content of the course is taught by experienced and gifted teachers, meeting four key objectives, and resulting in an internationally recognised qualification. 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. You will get the opportunity to talk with others about what you have been learning in your Family Group, Interactive Group and New Testament Discussion Group. 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
Crafting a Christian Worldview
Introduction to the Bible
The attributes of God
