The ecclesiastical parish is New Clee St John & St Stephen, based on the eponymous parish church, includes suburban streets, the station, part of the docks, and Grant Thorold Park which was a 1904 gift to Grimsby.[2][3] The parish is part of the Deanery of Grimsby & Cleethorpes. The 2013 incumbent is the Revd Kay Jones.[4]

The original Saxon church of St. John the Evangelist was rebuilt in 1879, designed by J. Fowler, the Louth architect.[5] It was demolished when the Cleethorpes road was widened.[1][6] The church, with both its dedications, now meets at the Shalom Centre in Rutland Street.[7]

According to the Church Urban Fund this is one of the most deprived areas in the country.[7][8]

Blundell Park football ground is in the suburb, but outside the ecclesiastical parish.

The suburb is served by New Clee railway station.
