Introducing our Curate

 Introducing Nick Baker


Nick joined the Benefice in July 2020 and was ordained deacon in Leicester Cathedral on 27th September 2020

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.
