Welcome to Capernwray New Zealand

In the midst of a fast-moving, demanding world, we believe it's very important to have a sense of who we are and where we are going. Capernwray New Zealand is a place where we believe that you can truly find out what life is all about.

Why Capernwray New Zealand?

At Capernwray New Zealand we offer a range of academic and outdoor courses as well as conferences, functions and events. These are designed to teach, train and equip those who want to grow and discover personally the life that comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and what this means practically in the context of work, church, community and mission.

Vehicle Fundraiser - Part 2!

Thank you to all those wondeful individuals who have supported us with gifts to enable us to purchase a new vehicle so that we can get our students to their ministry and Church on Sunday's.

With our increasing student numbers, we have a need to upgrade to one further vehicle as soon as possible. 

Please pray with us as we seek funding to make this a reality!

A beautiful location to dream big and discover life!

Bible School

Our Bible school courses provide a great mix of foundational teaching and practical training to live the authentic Christian life. We seek and work to teach, train and equip those wanting to learn more about the life that comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord; preparing them for future ministry. We have a number of courses and options from longer to shorter term but whichever one is chosen, you will love completing it in New Zealand.


Our centres host regular events throughout the year. With an exciting mixture of different things, there is always something for someone going on. We also host people from throughout the world for a variety of conferences, camps and retreats. All with the aim of sharing the joy and hope we have in Christ. As well as this we are able to cater for food needs through our onsite dining, and offer great facilities such as gardens for a gentle stroll, a game of croquet, doubles for tennis; or cool down with a dip in our salt water pool.

New Zealand

The home of middle earth and land of the long white cloud, New Zealand is a location like no other. Up a mountain or on the lake, along a river or in untouched bush, New Zealand is a place with everything to offer and no wildlife to fear. From inner city to long sandy beaches, or a tiki tour with no destination, whatever your fancy, it's a small country with a big personality and an amazing place for students to study and live.

Student Life

It is common for new Capernwray students to experience a swell of different emotions on beginning their journey with us. Everything appears new and exciting but when this settles, feelings of home-sickness or isolation from family can create doubt in a decision to come to New Zealand.

However, don't worry, it's very normal and with a wide array of great staff, campus facilities, service opportunities, outreach and mission plus a swag of leisure time, Capernwray New Zealand is like no other. Students soon find they feel right at home, growing with new friends for life and a deeper relationship in Christ.

"My experience at Capernwray New Zealand was nothing short of life-changing... life with Jesus became real to me. I finally learned to place my identity in Christ alone and to rest in His unfailing love, because of who He is and not anything I can do ."
