The Rev. Nigel Taber-Hamilton
Nigel was born and grew up in London, England, graduating from two different universities in Bangor, Wales and Birmingham, England, then from an Ecumenical seminary (Anglican/Methodist/Presbyterian/Congregationalist) in Birmingham. He then spent a year as a World Council of Churches Ecumenical Fellow at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA, where he also graduated from our west coast seminary, the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. Returning to London for a year, he served as a deacon in a parish in Wimbledon, but declined priestly ordination in the Church of England because of his opposition to the C of E’s refusal to ordain women as priests. He emigrated to this country in 1979 and was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Indianapolis, where he served for 19 years, before becoming rector of St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods, Freeland, from which he retired in 2019. He is currently finishing his D. Min. at San Francisco Theological Seminary in Marin, CA. His wife Rachel is rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Everett, and they live with their dachshund, collie, and two snowshoe Siamese cats on 3 acres on the south end of Whidbey Island.
