Church history

The Evangelical Parish was founded in Sombor in 1880. Worship services were originally held in a rented house until the Evangelical Church was built in 1901. This church was located in the immediate vicinity of the Central School and the City Theater, in the then Zmijina Street. The Evangelical Church was consecrated on December 8, 1901, and until 1908, worship services were held there by local reformers.

Appearance and characteristics of the church
The Evangelical Church is a rectangular building with a semicircular apse. The parish home was built next to the church in 1903, while the church tower was erected only a few decades later. The Evangelical Church requested permission from the city authorities in 1936 to build this tower. The cornerstone was laid in September 1937, and the solemn consecration was held in December of the same year. Funding was provided from donations from citizens of all faiths and nationalities, as well as with the help of other evangelical churches and the administration of the city of Sombor. When the tower was erected, a bell was received as a gift from the German evangelical association "Gustav Adolf".

Additional information
After the Second World War and the eviction of the Germans, the number of evangelical believers in Sombor dropped significantly. The Evangelical Church did not have a permanent pastor for decades and was slowly decaying, both outside and inside. With the help of the funds of this religious community and the city of Sombor, a detailed external and internal reconstruction of the church was done from 2015 to 2017.
