CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

On the 6th November 1970, Capernwray purchased ‘Wongabri’, 28 acres of farm land.

Since Capernwray Australia first opened their doors to students in January 1972, we have seen over 2,500 students from 35 different countries come and study with us, with hundred more guests and campers.

2022 saw us reach 50 years since our doors opened and we want to celebrate with you.

We long to see the ministry at Capernwray Australia continue for years to come, so that we can continue to instruct students in the content of Scripture, in order that they might discover through the written word the reality of the Living Word.

In order for our doors to remain open for both current and future generations we need your support. We are praying and asking for donations, with a goal of $1.2 million (AUD) to be used in three main areas: General Funds, Upgrade Projects and Student Sponsorship.

1. GENERAL FUNDS – $300,000

Recent border closures and reduced student numbers due to COVID-19 has significantly impacted our general finances. In order to make it through these last few years, it was necessary to take out a loan of $150,000. We would like to pay this back as soon as possible. Along with paying back our loan, we would like to build back up our general funds to help cover our running costs, such as utilities, wages etc.

2. UPGRADE PROJECTS – $600,000

Over the past 50 years, we have seen many changes to our buildings. Old ones have disappeared, new ones have popped up. Walls were demolished, and new spaces were created. It is well past time for a structural upgrade, and to bring our campus facilities up to the required standard. We want to make our students, guests, and staff feel as welcome, safe, comfortable, and at home as possible.

3. STUDENT SPONSORSHIP – $300,000

As we are a primarily a Bible School, we want to welcome as many students as we can, and to see them come to a rich understanding of the indwelling Life of Christ. Due to the continued increased cost of running, however, this often means that students are not in a financial position where they can afford to pay the cost of the full fees.

We would like to be able to support and assist those future students in attending Capernwray Australia by offering them reduced fees. By building up funds for student sponsorship, we will be able to bless countless students, as they seek to study the Word of God in community

UPGRADE PROJECTS

CONFERNECE HALL DORMS

In 2019 we commenced the up grade to our conference hall, removing the west bathroom and building a student lounge and renovating 2 dorm rooms. Giving each room their own ensuite and 2 built in wardrobes. The remaining 4 rooms were due to be completed the following year (2020) however due to COVID this was unable to happen. We would like to complete the remaining rooms in 2023.

RE-ROOFING UNITS 1-7

It’s time to relocate those pesky possums out of the roof and give our staff/volunteers a peaceful night’s sleep. We plan to replace the tile roof with tin and add some sky lights and ventilation.

DRIVEWAY

Our driveway has seen better days and with the large amount of rain we have had over the last two years it is a constant battle to stop it from washing away. The plan is to scrap it down to the base and re lay a new more stable top.

STUDENT CHAIRS & DESKS

After hundreds of students and guests have sat on our chairs they are starting to wear a out and we would like to replace them along with out desks with something a little more durable and easy to move and store.
