On average, there are between 30 and 50 people each year, and they come from all different walks of life. There are often some international students; this year we had students from Switzerland, Canada, Eritrea, Israel and Portugal.
Some students come straight after they’ve finished school or university, some are well into their careers but decide to take some time out for them and for God. We’ve even had retirees, who have been a great addition and enrichment to what is normally a younger age range. Most years, we also have a young couple or a family with young children. The average age of our students is between 23 and 25 years.
