Capernwray DownUnder is a unique option to get the best out of a whole year. As 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.
Our programs are great for anyone who loves to discover the Bible, grow in their relationship to the Lord and truly discover the reality of the indwelling life of Christ. Within your time in “DownUnder”, you will be challenged in many ways to go one step further than you imagined. Come and join this life-changing adventure!
DiscipleshipFor any student who wants to devote themselves more fully to the discovery of Christ in a Bible School setting. This does not mean you are kept in the classroom; everything you’ll learn will be put into practice.
AdventureCombine the Adventure Bible School (NZ) & The Aussie Road Trip (AUS) to create a trip of a lifetime for any thrill-seeking traveler. Includes intensive ‘on the road’ practical ministry with a physically challenging experience in the wild New Zealand nature.
LeadershipThis is for the student who knows they are called to some position of leadership and/or ministry. We’ve combined both BML (Business Ministry & Leadership – NZ) and LIT (Leadership Internship Training – AUS) to give you the best programs for this calling.
In the lectures, you learn how to study the Bible, lead a small group and how to share the gospel and your faith with friends and strangers. You’ll get many opportunities to share the love of Christ in the communities and engage with local churches. Our goal is, that you will discover the reality of Christ living in and through you, as well as finding God’s plan for your life and future.
ABS is a world-class adventure based program where you’ll experience Christ in His creation. Highly qualified leaders will guide you through Spiritual discovery in the wild, teaching the word as you go. The Aussie Road Trip functions like an adrenaline filled church-on-wheels where you’ll learn how to share the Gospel in Australian communities, youth contexts all the way to the streets & beaches. A great way to travel Australia while growing in your personal growth in Christ. This is not for the faint hearted as you will be challenged in many ways.
Leadership Development is the core of the Leadership Package. Whether you feel called to vocational ministry or the business world you’ll find here a great foundation to serve Christ in your unique mission-field. Both BML & LIT have been well crafted for those Christians who are called to incredibly demanding environments where standing for your faith isn’t celebrated or even wanted. Get the grounding you need firstly in God’s word and then in the latest expertise and skills.
Are the flights included
No, due to fluctuating costs and individual travel plans we cannot offer flights. Please contact us if you need any help, we can also help you find cheap flights if you need.
Is there any difference between DownUnder students and normal program students?
No, each centre will treat you like a new arriving student. Each package is designed to line up with a new student intake.
Could we not have arranged this ourselves?
Yes, the reason for the DownUnder package is to take the guess-work and confusion out for you. We have also worked really hard to align the best programs from each centre to give you the best possible “DownUnder” experience. We have found that the DownUnder packages are the best options any student can get.
What Do I Do In Between The Programs?
We have come up with a range of possible activities for each Package option. They include (depending on time of the year) helping at our youth camps, working locally, an internship with a local church or personal travel. If you have any questions about what is available for your particular package choice we are more than happy to help you with this.
Christ in you, the hope of glory
- Colossians 1:27
One message can change the world – Jesus Christ. Torchbearers exist to provide a quality Christ-centred community where each individual is taught and nurtured in the Word of God. Our goal is teaching Scripture so that the students will know God, their relationship to Him and the reality of the risen, indwelling Christ in their lives.
They will have a deeper knowledge of the Bible and how all its parts interrelate and will be better able to serve in their church and local communities as their confidence in the Word of God and person of Christ excites them to contribute effectively.
