For years the HOG Șoarș (hometown community of Saxons) has been trying to stop the continuous decay of the church and its outbuildings. With good will and the best hope for success, even small interim goals could be achieved. Nevertheless, a professional and long-term conservation concept is still needed.
On request and on the initiative of Ursula Hummes, the Fortified Churches Foundation prepared a short report in December 2015.
