Nowy Kościół [ˈnɔvɨ ˈkɔɕt͡ɕuu̯] (German: Neukirch) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Świerzawa, within Złotoryja County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles. It lies approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) north-west of Świerzawa, 9 km (6 mi) south-west of Złotoryja, and 83 km (52 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.
