Programme Details

Dates: Monday 6th to Friday 10th July 2020

Location: Carmelite Priory, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HB

Programme Requirements

No prior knowledge is required, and presentations are pitched at an introductory level. While you are expected to complete some pre-course reading, you are not required to produce any written work during the week.


This is a non-residential course, but if you wish to stay at the Carmelite Priory during your course, please call the Administrator at 01865 730183/730133 to find out about availability and rates and to book your accommodation.


We adopt a tiered pricing system. Our quoted prices are fully inclusive of participation in the course, refreshments, two course lunch, and full access to the Carmelite Priory facilities, e.g., our meditation rooms, chapel and library. We believe that the benefits of biblical and spiritual formation should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation and that the transformational journey is enriched by a diversity of participants. Recognising that what is affordable for some can be a financial stretch for others, we are happy to offer a tiered pricing structure (Sustainable Price and Supported Price) for our courses. When you book, please select the price that feels appropriate for you.

Our Sustainable Price is £400. This can be paid in instalments.

Our Supported Price is £350. This can also be paid in instalments and reflects a partial bursary toward the cost of the course and is intended for those with minor financial need.


CACS Scripture & Spirituality Summer School courses are designed for an international audience of adults.

Please note: our courses fill up fast and so early registration is strongly recommended. Registration closes on 1 June 2020.
