Capernwray Harbour: Bible School & Conference Setting

Nestled among the Gulf Islands of British Columbia’s west coast, Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre on Thetis Island offers students and guests a unique learning experience!

From September through to May, Capernwray Harbour runs a one-year Bible School programme where sound, practical Bible teaching focusing on both the Old and New Testament scriptures in which God reveals the indwelling, resurrected Christ as the Christian Life is given.  Students gain an experiential knowledge of Christ and how His presence practically applies to daily living.

Through classroom studies, tutorial, dialogue-based small group studies, and summary journals, students have opportunity to share from the written Word what God is teaching them & how He is working in their lives.  Many outreach opportunities located in surrounding communities and cities are available for students to participate in as well as international, short-term missions trips.

Capernwray Harbour welcomes people of all denominational backgrounds and nationalities. The student body of approximately 100 students joins the full-time staff to create a community intent on knowing Jesus Christ as LIFE.  The desire of every staff member at Capernwray Harbour is to prepare each student for “full time Christian service, regardless of occupation.”

The Taste & See offering is available on select weeks during the Bible School year.  Taste & See is designed for potential students to experience life as a student for one week.  Being fully immersed in Student Life, (including staying in student accommodation, sharing meals and participating in home groups, work day, daily duties, outreach, seminars and lectures) gives a broader picture to what to expect during a one – year Bible School programme at Capernwray Harbour.

During the summer months, Capernwray Harbour makes its facilities available for various groups as a full-service venue to hold their conference or retreat.  In addition, Capernwray Harbour hosts Ladies & Men’s Conference Weekends, Family Holiday Bible Weeks as well as youth weekends where men, women, youth & children can be encouraged in their walk with the Lord Jesus amidst an island, holiday setting.

Samuel’s Mantle – your destiny

September is a new page waiting to come to life — and on this page is our yearly vision and goals. But now, as this new page is just in front of us, it is the time to look at it a little differently. Consider this question: How would you like to experience the nature of God this year? As a Christian our goal or destiny is not what we do, it is how we get to know God and His ways through what we do. Doing as a Christian is a developing relational experience of the Father. (John 5:19) Sometimes to get to know the character of God it takes a step of doing to experience the goodness of God. Check in your heart, what desire has God hidden there in regards to knowing Him? (Psalms 37:4) Ponder putting that on your new page as well – how could you serve to experience God like that? (For Murray’s blog on this topic – samuelsmantlepartners.com)
