Bible School

Capernwray New Zealand Available Courses

Capernwray New Zealand (CNZ) is a wonderful environment for students to live in an international cross cultural community and a huge part of life. Students find living and studying the bible with practical service a lot of fun at CNZ, plus discovering who they are in Christ a real joy and adventure. Staff and guest lecturers from a wide spread of teachers across NZ and beyond empowers passion, drive and purpose for our students.

Current Restrictions on Course Acceptance

Due to the impact of COVID-19, Capernwray NZ is not currently running the Monavale Bible School and standard ABS courses as originally planned.  We are hosting conference and function groups, and running camps and special courses as we are able.

Please pray with us that we can recommence our normal school operations soon. Sadly, current NZ border restrictions indicate that we won't be able to have overseas students before July 2022. We are taking applications for all courses from October 2021, but only NZ and Australian students can be accepted until the July 2022 intake.

Main Courses

Note: The main office for our centres and courses in New Zealand is based at Monavale Homestead, near Cambridge.
If you are phoning from overseas, please check for current NZ time before calling. After hours you can leave a message or may be redirected to the on-duty staff.

Capernwray has been running a Bible School at the Monavale campus since 1996. There are 20-week, 30-week and 40-week programme options.

ABS stands for 'Adventure Bible School'. It's a 6 week intensive, outdoor teaching programme based at our beautiful Adventure Lodge on the shores of Lake Karapiro.

You can choose to combine the ABS course with the 20, 30 or 40 week Monavale Bible School programme, or a taste of MBS with a 4-week end of term option.

Other Courses

There is also a unique opportunity to experience our courses in other ways.

Capernwray DownUnder is a unique option to get the best out of a whole year. At Capernwray Australia and New Zealand, we created three packages that fit perfectly together. Going “DownUnder” is great for you as you only have to apply once and all programs fit together seamlessly. This way the all subjects complement each other.

A unique opportunity for potential students to come to Capernwray for a week to get a 'TASTE' of what Bible School is all about and 'SEE' if it's what God is calling you to! 

"My life used to be a rollercoaster dragging me to the quenching actions of sin. But then I met Jesus Christ; the man who chose me; who rescued me. The peace that fills the deepest voids in my heart is indescribable. "
