Rev Karen Sethuraman is the first female Baptist Minister in Ireland and is currently a Pastor of SoulSpace, a Peace and Reconciliation hub, based in Belfast.

Her passion is peace and reconciliation/social justice and she is a champion of gender equality.

The Rev Karen is also one of the founders of Spectrum - a space set up in Belfast for LGBT+ people of faith. Karen feels particularly called to minister outside the Church walls, journeying with people who feel they ‘don’t fit’ in Church.

She has served as Chaplain to two Belfast Lord Mayors and in May 2021 joined the group Ireland's Future, a group established to promote discussion and debate about a new constitutional vision for our island.
