In 1781 construction of the first evanghelic church began, the first child of evanghelic religion was registered. Organ was built by craftsman Komornyi, was brought from a synagogue from Timișoara in 1899. In 1894 and 1895 church was enlarged.

Because of lanslides in 1936 butresses are built , in 1975 tower was reduced and in 2010 was demolished and moved with 5 m towards church's interior, thus nave's dimmensions were reduced.

Organ was moved in Johanis chuch from Sibiu. Germans had once two schools, in old one there is an orthodox church. In Second World War more Germans from Hodod enroled in SS troups, that's why in October 1944, 20 families left in Germania by carriages, those remained were deported by Russians. The holly ceremonies are held only a few times in a year by priest from Alba Iulia, burrials are made by reformed priest.
