For over a decade, Dr Rosemarie Mallet served as vicar to a multi-ethnic, inner-city church in South London. She also served as chair of the board of governors for local church schools around Brixton, South London, and as Director of the Department of Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation. She currently serves as a Lambeth Equalities Commissioner and chairs a Brixton-based community charity engaged in building social cohesion.

Prior to ordination, Rosemarie worked in community and international development as a sociologist. Through community and church engagement, and an interest in faith in the public realm, she moved from a career in academia to the ordained ministry.

Rosemarie has lived in the UK for most of her life, after leaving Barbados as a child. As an adult, she has lived in West and East Africa, as well as Barbados, for substantial periods of time.
