Nocrich (German: Leschkirch; Hungarian: Újegyház) is a commune in Sibiu County, Romania, in the region of Transylvania. The commune is situated between Agnita and Sibiu. It is composed of five villages: Fofeldea, Ghijasa de Jos, Hosman, Nocrich and Țichindeal. Nocrich and Hosman have fortified churches.
In 1910, the Agnita to Sibiu railway line was completed with stations at Nocrich, Țichindeal and Hosman. However, the line was closed in 2001. An active restoration group has since been formed aiming to restore the entire line to working condition.
