In Șimleul Silvaniei the Catholic converted them in small number, and the reformed were obliged to make their own church. The first sanctuary was built in XVI of rods and was covered with straws. The priest's income was assured by an ordinance issued by the voivode Bethlen in 1615.

The church burnt by Turkish and Tartars in 1666 was rebuilt in 1670 on a stone foundation and the belfry as well. Between 1685 and 1686 the walls are strengthened and it was covered with shingle. In 1688 the belfry is renovated and two new bells are mounted. In 1703 the church was destroyed by the Austriac army and rebuilt between 1729 and 1736. The new church has a wooden tower replaced in 1815 with a stone one high of 27 m.

In 1917 both bells were taken away. The cassette ceiling decorated with folk motifs was made in 1737 by Pataki János, the organ in1769 by Johannes Hahn and the tower clock in 1817.
