The history of Reformed church from Hodod began before XIII century, archeological diggings in 2006 revealed a window in romanic style. Under sacristy there is a crypt. The last one burried here was Túri Sára in 1733. Present church built in XV century.

Sacristy and nave's narrow windows send us back in Arpád' house period. Sacristy is sustained in exterior by butresess. Inittialy roof with arches was replaced with a flat one decorated with floral motifs. West entrance has a semircircular vault, north one has a sharp one. Tower built in 1901 repalced an older one even smaller. Stone pulpit made by craftsman Sipos Dávid in 1754. Iscriptions and symbols reffer to Wesselényi Ferencre and his wife Rhédei Zsuzsannára, they order it. In tower are 3 bells from XVII century.

The oldest bell was made in 1603, litlle one in 1651, the bigger one in 1619. The latter one was brought from the stronghold. Can be observed clearly the level difference , tower is sinking, but is stable unlike the nave central part which is continuously sinking in spite the repeated efforts to stabilize it. Specialists are helpless, its renovation was interrupted. Christians started the new church's construction on a more stable ground.
