Christ Church, Newark is a parish church in the Church of England in Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire.

History[edit]

The church was built in 1836 to 1837 by the architect J. D. Paine.[1] It was evangelical in foundation, and the patronage was under the Church Pastoral Aid Society.

As Newark on Trent expanded, a new church was built to replace it in 1956 at the junction of Boundary Road and Holden Crescent. It was consecrated by the Bishop of Southwell in 1958.

Organ[edit]

The church has a two manual organ by Cousins of Lincoln. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
