Leadership Capel Methodist Church has a minister, currently Revd Andrew Sankey, a shared outreach worker (Sue France) and a team of stewards. They meet together regularly as a leadership team, and between them they share day-to-day responsibility for the many facets of church life. As in every Methodist church, there is a Church Council made up of the Minister, Stewards, and other key people with responsibility within this local church, plus elected representatives from the body of the church. The members of the church council are legally the managing trustees of the local church. Capel Methodist Church belongs to the Ipswich circuit of Methodist churches, which is in turn part of the East Anglia District, which has the oversight of an ordained Chairperson. This District is one section of the whole Methodist Connexion. The Connexion is the body that connects all Methodist churches in the UK.
