The Very Reverend Nicholas Papadopulos was installed as the 81st Dean of Salisbury in September 2018.

As Dean, he leads the life and work of Salisbury Cathedral, and chairs the Chapter, which is the Cathedral’s governing and strategic body. As senior priest of the Diocese he shares with the Bishop and members of his staff in the oversight of the Diocese.

Nick grew up in Kent and worked for seven years as barrister specializing in criminal law, both defending and prosecuting.

He was ordained in the Diocese of Portsmouth in 1999 (deacon) and 2000 (priest), serving a three-year curacy in the inner-city parish of St Mark Portsea. He arrived in Salisbury for the first time in 2002 and worked for nearly five years as chaplain and press officer to Bishop David Stancliffe. He was appointed Vicar of St Peter’s Eaton Square, London, in 2007 and then moved to Canterbury Cathedral as Canon Treasurer and Director of Initial Ministerial Education for the Diocese.

Nick is married to Heather, a circuit judge, and they have two adult children.
