The tower was built in 1613 by Lieven de Key against the older St. Anna church that itself was replaced by a design by Jacob van Campen in 1645-1649.[1] The organ was originally built by J. van Covelen in the 16th century for the St. Bavochurch and was moved to the Nieuwe Kerk in 1791 by H. Hess.[1] The mechanical clock in the tower is from 1795.[1] In the church tower there is a bell from 1749 with a diameter of 98 centimeters by Cyprianus Crans.[1]
