As a Christian Bible School and Holiday centre, we expect that you will join us in our pursuit of unity and harmony, showing courtesy and respect to all people on our site.

You must be at least 18 years old at the start of your period of voluntary work. You must be able to speak and understand English to a good level, please also read our guidance if you are coming from overseas.

Bible studies and services

We believe our weekly staff Bible Study, the Sunday meetings and being part of a local church are important for your spiritual well-being and ask that you attend these. During Bible School, we place each voluntary worker in a student family group, led by a member of staff, and we expect everyone to contribute to the group.

Working days

As a voluntary workers you will work full days, often in shifts, in food-service and housekeeping; maintenance and grounds, or as sports assistants. You will get two days off per week.


As a voluntary worker, you will receive meals and dormitory accommodation and travel expenses. During Bible School and Holidays, you are also welcome to attend lectures whenever you’re not working. You will benefit from a wonderful community of people, pastoral support and encouragement, and we’ll do all we can to make sure you gain as much as you give from your time at Capernwray.
