David Capey

Born in Cheshire just south of Manchester, David studied chemistry at Birmingham University before becoming a member of the research staff at Essex University in 1965.  A lifelong Anglican, he became involved with the Anglican chaplaincy there in 1974 and was a member of the Appeal Trust which led to the formation of a Multi-Faith Chaplaincy there in the early 1980s and he was a founder member of the Committee of Management of the Multi-Faith Centre.
On retirement he became a Trustee Director of the Suffolk Inter-Faith Resource and served as its Treasurer and Hon. Executive Officer.
He served on and became chairman of the National Council of Faith and Belief in Further Education.
Together with his wife, Cynthia, he was instrumental in founding the East of England Faiths Agency C.I.C. in 2001 and is its Company Secretary.
David enjoys his voluntary inter-faith work and rejoices in the fact that as he learns more of other faiths, the more he gains insights into his own faith.
