Before that, there was a large cathedral on the site of the Nieuwe Kerk. The cathedral burned down in 1832. In July 1835 - two and a half years after the fire - work began on a new church (hence the name 'Nieuwe Kerk'). Since the architect who took over the work went bankrupt, construction was halted for a long time. The Nieuwe Kerk was inaugurated in 1848.At the end of the Second World War, the church was badly damaged. A repair followed, but a general restoration was inevitable. Because of the high financial burden, the Reformed Congregation could not have the work carried out. The building was closed in 1971. The Nieuwe Kerk deteriorated noticeably after windows were smashed and wind and rain were allowed to run free.
A solution came in 1977. The building was given to the Stichting Oude Zeeuwse Kerken (Foundation of the Old Zeeland churches). The building was restored in phases between 1978 and 1988, with financial support. As a fine example of ecclesiastical architecture of the 19th century, the Nieuwe Kerk is a special object in the monumental city of Zierikzee.

Previously, a large cathedral-like church stood on the site of the Nieuwe Kerk. This church burned down in 1832. In July 1835 - two and a half years after the fire - work began for a new church (hence the name 'New Church').
