The belltower was originally constructed in the 14th century, but later modified for hardships during the 16th century. Also the roof was constructed during this preparation. After a recent renovation, the clock of the belltower functions properly again.
Because of the middleship's destruction by the szeklarian troops, it was later rebuilt in different architecture from 1795 to 1797.
The altar that can currently be seen in the church was manufactured in 1854. The previous one was likely damaged.
The pulpit was put there in 1796 and later gold plated in 1857 and 1858.
The organ that is currently installed, is from the year 1800, although there was a previous one from around 1763.
