Introducing our Curate

 Introducing Nick Baker

 

Nick joined the Benefice in July 2020. He's currently licenced as a layworker, prior to his ordination in September.

Nick was born and raised in Sussex. Having studied history at the University of Kent, he became an assistant in a second-hand bookshop which launched him into an (unexpected!) career in the world of books. After a spell in an auction house, he spent nine years with the historic collections at Eton College and was later appointed librarian of Hereford Cathedral. He came to the Midlands in 2014 when he joined Princethorpe College, Rugby, as its archivist. Nick first felt the call to ordained ministry in his late teens but only started to explore it a few years ago. Prior to joining the Wigston Benefice, Nick trained at the College of St Hild and was on placement at Burbage and Aston Flamville.
