Capernwray is a place where God changes lives, and has been doing so since the very first guests in 1947. We are an international, interdenominational, Christian Bible School offering short-term courses. We run a wide range of Christian holidays for all ages throughout the year. We also offer our sports and other facilities for hire and to the public at certain times.  Our mission 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.

Our Sports Assistant voluntary workers assist in the supervision of swimming pool and sports activities. You will be serving our Bible School students, Holiday guests and the general public throughout the year.

Day to day responsibilities include:

  • Pool side assistance
  • Organising student and guest sports
  • Handling chemicals
  • Maintaining clean facilities
  • Cash handling
  • Basic office administration including answering the phone and assisting with emails

The work is busy but it is a great opportunity to serve the Lord by serving others, as well as an opportunity to work and relax with an international team.

You do not need to have previous experience in a similar role, as full instruction and training will be given.  However, a desire and willingness to learn is essential for this position.

While living and serving at Capernwray, you are expected to engage fully in all that Christian community life offers. There will be opportunities to participate in prayer meetings and Bible studies, community worship and to attend a local church. In addition, you will also be invited to join Bible School lectures and programme activities when feasible. A support programme specifically for our volunteers includes a weekly gathering for Bible study, day trips, small ‘family’ groups, as well as a designated prayer partner.
