Welcome to the online home of Newark Evangelical Church (NEC). Hopefully, as you are browsing, you will learn a bit more about who we are, what we do and when we do it! You are all welcome to join us for our Sunday services at 10:30am & 6:00pm at our Pelham Street building (or Zoom) and any other of our activities throughout the week that you think you may be interested in.
Who are we?
We are a group of people living in and around Newark-on-Trent who trust in Jesus Christ alone (not in our own goodness) for eternal salvation, and who in gratitude to God seek to serve Him and to be a blessing to others around us.
NEC is independent of any organised Christian denomination, acknowledging Christ alone as the Head of the Church. We enjoy fellowship with other evangelical churches in our region and are affiliated to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC).
Where do we meet?
Before the pandemic many of our meetings were held in our building in the heart of Newark town centre, in a building that once upon a time was the town’s fire station – on the corner of Pelham Street and Portland Street. The former engine repair pit has often been used as the baptistry and we thank God that in recent years it has been in frequent use. While many of our meetings are now having to be held online, we hope to be able to restart in-person meetings again when it is possible to do so.
There is a small car park at the back of our building but this can fill up very quickly. However, there are a number of streets nearby with unrestricted parking and there are numerous car parks around the town centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the church building. Please feel free to contact us if you are not sure how to get here or where to park and we will happily point you in the right direction.
We also have a congregation at Fernwood Community Church.
So, whether you live in the town, in the countryside around, or are just visiting, you are more than welcome to join us. We’d love to see you sometime!
