Greetings! My name is Philip Mallon, I am the Pastor of Westhoughton Evangelical Church in the borough of Bolton in Greater Manchester, UK. I was converted to Christ in late 2007 – early 2008 after reading the bible and seeing my desperate need of salvation.
In the following year or so after my conversion, I sensed a calling to Gospel ministry. Through much prayer and a number of confirming indicators through the Lord’s people, the Lord eventually guided me in the direction of the London Reformed Baptist Seminary at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. From 2010-2014, there I would receive formal training in Pastoral and Theological Studies.
I came to Westhoughton Evangelical with my wife and children in September 2014, and joined membership in Mid 2015, serving alongside other faithful brethren in Sunday School and 'Open Air' evangelistic work.
Under the care and oversight of Rev. Stephen Holland, I have been afforded many opportunities to evaluate and pursue the calling to ministry over a period of 4 years. In accordance with the Lord’s blessing and guidance, along with the encouragement of the Church, I was ordained in January 2019, taken up the lead Pastorate in 2021
