Introducing our future Curate

 Introducing Nick Baker

The Benefice is to receive a new curate in June 2020. Nick is currently training at the College of St Hild but is on placement in the parishes of Burbage and Aston Flamville. To offer a little bit of a pen portrait:

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. He is delighted that God has brought him to the Wigston Benefice and looks forward to meeting us all.

We look forward to welcoming Nick to the Benefice but meanwhile, please remember him in your prayers and pray for the Benefice as a whole as together we prepare to play an important part in his early ministry.
