Bible School

Discover how
Jesus Christ lives
in and through
the Christian.

Our Bible school programmes provide foundational teaching and practical training to live the authentic Christian life. You can spend a gap year at Bible school or attend for a shorter time.



We believe as we study God’s Word we encounter the living Lord Jesus. You’ll receive practical Bible teaching and learn to study the Scriptures for yourself – with the aim to know Christ and understand God’s Truth and it’s relevance for your life.


Participate in an intentional community of people who have discovered their need of Jesus and are pursuing Him, develop meaningful relationships with students from different countries and backgrounds and be discipled by staff who have developed a living relationship with Christ.

Practical Training

Our faith and relationship with Christ is meant to be lived out in the world. You’ll have opportunities to put into practice what you are learning as you serve one another and go on outreach into the community.

What can you expect?

At Bible school you will go on many adventures, develop meaningful friendships, have a lot of fun and be stretched in many ways. That’s why many students spend their gap year at Bible school. But the most important experience you can have is to encounter the Lord Jesus and deepen your relationship with Him, and learn what it means to live life with God. As you walk with Jesus expect your life to be changed as you experience Him working in and through you.

What our students thought

  • Jesus is not a God who doesn't care, just living up in heaven. He does care for each one of us and comes down to earth to live in us.

  • The teaching was academic, having a lot of theology, but it was also incredibly personal! I was able to get to know Jesus myself and take a way a personal knowledge and relationship with Him.
