This is the oldest Reformed church in Debrecen.

The onion dome was torn down by a 1907 tempest. After that the steeple's original shape was never restored but it was altered in the manner of a bastion, hence the name: Truncated Church.

Debrecen legrégebbi református temploma.

A tornyot eredetileg hagymaszerű toronysisak zárta.

1907-ben azonban a sisakot megrongálta egy óriási vihar. Megjavították, ám később a szél ismét ledöntötte a toronytetőt. Az építők - belenyugodva az isteni akaratba - kupola nélküli, bástyaszerű kiképzést adtak a toronynak.
