This church was founded on October 31, 1932, by the Rev. Janos Apostol under the supervision of the Reformed Church of Hungary. The first parish was organized in the city of S?o Paulo by Hungarian immigrants, the majority of them being from the region of Transylvania. Other congr were implanted in the states of S?o Paulo and Paraná. The church reached its high point between 1945 and 1980 when it had a total membership of 700 with three pastors. With the death of the Rev. Janos Apostol in 1991 the church entered into a period of difficulties and used the services of Luth Hungarian pastors. At the present time a Brazilian pastor of Hungarian descent is serving the church, holding worship services in both Hungarian and Portuguese.
