Proclaiming Jesus Christ as Life!

West Coast Setting

Capernwray Harbour is located on 97 acres of woods, meadows and seashore on Thetis Island, a Gulf Island off the coast of Vancouver BC. From the mountaintops to the rainforests to the open sea, there is something for everyone to explore!

International Community Life

Students and Staff of varying nationalities and denominational backgrounds join together to form a community that seeks to discover the character of Jesus Christ and to experience His indwelling Life. Community living through work days, daily duties, outdoor recreation and outreach opportunities offers hands-on experience to apply the classroom teaching.

Programme Highlights

The curriculum covers nearly all books of the Bible. Although students are required to prepare assignments, the emphasis is on personal discovery of Jesus Christ through discipleship rather than on academic achievement. Study Projects, Seminars, Work Days, Outreaches, Extracurricular Activities and Field Trips are intricate parts of the learning experience.

A Programme of Discovery

Each year, Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre welcomes about 100 students of various ages, nationalities and denominations for the Bible School Program. Together with our full-time staff team, students form a community that seeks to discover the character of Jesus Christ and to experience the transforming power of His indwelling Life.
