Wantage Methodist Church is part of the Wantage and Abingdon Circuit of the Methodist Church, which in turn is part of the Northampton District.

Like all Methodist Churches, it is the Church Council that is the Governing Body.

It's members are Managing Trustees with overall responsibility for all that goes on within the life of the church. Managing Trustees need to be members of the Methodist Church.

As a rule, the Church Council meets three times a year; in February, June and October but additional meetings can be called if necessary by giving two weeks written notice prior to the meeting.

Church Council meetings are open to anyone to attend, but only those who are Managing Trustees are eligible to vote on issues and resolutions.

Some of the Managing Trustees are appointed to the Church Council by the nature of the positions they hold or responsibilities they carry out e.g. Church Stewards etc., others are elected to serve on the Church Council at the General Church Meeting which is held annually, usually around March/April.
