Rosemarie Mallett


Born in Barbados, I have travelled many routes to arrive as an urban parish priest in London, starting out as a historian of the Caribbean, Africa & black Britain, then moving on first to Africa and then home to the Caribbean to work as a development sociologist; then all change in a move to London to work as a senior medical sociologist and ethno-cultural mental health research scientist, and through community activism and church engagement somehow finding the path from academia to becoming a parish priest and mother of one. Nothing was lost on the journey.

Now I find myself very engaged in church development locally and nationally, still dealing with issues of justice and equity for women and minority ethnic people in church and outside. There's still a long road to travel... wellies on and marching forward....
