Parish of Belmont, Anglican Church Newcastle, NSW Australia

Nartex

NarthexA narthex of a church is the entrance or lobby area, at the end of the nave, at the far end from the church’s main altar. A narthex is part of the church building, not part of the church proper. It is either an indoor area separated from the nave, or an external structure such as a porch. At All Saints’ we enter and leave through the narthex.
