Many years ago (18 years ago actually) I attended Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre for two of the best years of my life. I spent those years learning more about my faith and making lifelong friends in the process.
On Thetis Island is Capernwray Harbour Bible Centre, a branch of the international and interdenominational work of Torchbearers International. It is one of 25 such centres for Bible training, retreats and evangelism, which are scattered throughout 20 different countries of the world.I loved my time at Capernwray and am thankful for the teaching I received there. If you have ever thought about going to bible school - or you have kids who are thinking of going to bible school- I'd like to recommend Capernwray. It is non-denominational and people from all over the world attend.
Capernwray has a great program called "Taste & See" where you can experience a week in the life of a student there for only $99. That is crazy cheap considering that covers full room & board for the week!
There is also a Torchbearers Conference Tour coming up:
These conferences will help reconnect us with some of the thousands of alumni across North America (around 20,000) and give us the opportunity to clearly and effectively communicate what is happening in the ministry of Torchbearers.
The conferences will be held at churches and will run from a Friday night through to late Saturday, or in some cases, Sunday morning. We have an exciting line-up of speakers, centre staff and guests for each weekend so check out the dates to see who will be where!
Denver 30th & 31st March
Milwaukee 13th & 14th July
Abbotsford 20th & 21st July
Portland 3rd & 4th August
Calgary 17th & 18th August

Like I said, this is not a paid post- I just wanted to share :)
