Evangelicals Now is a monthly evangelical Christian newspaper based in Surrey, England. The newspaper was started in 1986 by Bob Horn (with the support of Sir Fred Catherwood[1]) and the current editor is John Benton, who is also the pastor of Chertsey Street Baptist Church in Guildford. A readers survey in 2002 suggested that the newspaper has about 6,500 readers — mainly from Evangelical Free, Baptist, and Church of England churches.[2] The paper's website includes a searchable on-line archive of all articles from 1996 onwards.

The paper takes a reformed theological position[1] and is one of two in the United Kingdom that cater for this readership. It has a slightly broader approach than its counterpart (Evangelical Times), whilst remaining firmly within the conservative evangelical wing of the church.

However, in 1986 he was sacked [as editor of Evangelical Times] for being too open to charismatic ideas and, with the support of Sir Fred Catherwood, founded Evangelicals Now. This paper sought to involve those who were loyal to the biblical gospel from both nonconformist and evangelical Anglican circles. It is ironic that in the same year Bob was removed from the preaching rota of Barcombe Baptist Church for not being charismatic enough!
