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

History

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

As Newark 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

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.
