We are an independent fellowship of Christian believers that is Baptist in doctrine though not associated with any church organisation.
Here at Mallow Bible Fellowship we want to see the lives of people transformed through the Word of God and the Spirit of God; therefore, the Bible is preached to allow the Holy Spirit to change hearts. We strive to make the Bible applicable to everyday life so that people can demonstrate their faith in their attitudes, actions, and reactions (John 8:31-32; Romans 10:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Timothy 4:2-4; Hebrews 4:12). We are a church that has a heart for people with the resolution to lead people to Christ and help them mature in Him as well.
The Fellowship was founded in 2009 by Pastor Bob Hutton. Originally sited in the Southside Community Centre in the Sandfields area on the south side of Mallow, the congregation quickly grew. In 2010 the church was able to move to a much larger facility located in the very heart of the town at the Mallow Youth Centre (CDYS). In 2015 Pastor Joshua Steward was called to pastor the church. Pastor Josh has a lovely wife Denise and four beautiful children. In 2016, two more pastors and their families joined our church: Pastor Doug Staley and his wife, Amber, and Pastor John Slater, and his wife, Emily.
In 2019, Pastor Steward and his family moved to Tralee, Kerry to begin a new work, Tralee Bible Fellowship. Pastor Doug Staley was approved to be the new lead pastor at Mallow Bible Fellowship.
We have a full programme for all ages on Sunday mornings. There is an 11:00 am service which includes praise and worship followed by time for adults to hear and grow in God’s word. In parallel with the adults’ main service, we run children’s clubs for each age group, and we also have a club for teenagers. Toddlers are catered for with our creche. We operate an active Child Protection Policy and child protection officers supervise all children’s activities.
Every church is built with a unique ability to minister in the context where God has placed them; therefore, we will not encourage our people to be anyone or anywhere other than who God has created them to be. We strive to help people realise and fulfill the purpose God has for their lives. People of diverse cultures and backgrounds will be equally respected. Faith is more than religion. It’s about a relationship between a person and God. Together, we make faith worth living.
