Reformed Church

The church and the tower were built in 1828 and 1881, respectively. The inscription on the memorial above the entrance: „This holy building was renewed in the year 1888.” The number of seats are 100-100 on both the ground floor and the gallery. The marble-top of the Lord’s table is held by wrought-iron table legs. The baptismal font was made of red marble. The church was struck by lightning in 1982 and the tower burnt down. The benches were replaced, the pulpit and the staircase to the gallery were reconstructed. The parochial sacred vessels were brought back this time from Tata. The congregation of just over 300 people donated the small bell to the scattered congregation of the nearby municipality of Töltéstava. The two bells left in the tower weighing 247 and 99 kg were cast in Sopron by Frigyes Seltenhofer. The inscription on the larger bell says: „In thee do we put our trust from the beginning. Had cast by the subsidiary church of Pér in the year of the Lord 1935.” The inscription on the smaller bell says: „Come, let is worship, bow down and let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Had cast by the congregation of Pér in 1926.”
