The church is no longer in use so it's a museum. Need to pay to enter, same as most other churches but has a large selection of carpets which were given as gifts from merchants - some dating the the 17th century.

It's nice church located in the historic center of Sighisoara. It's newer than the other buildings. It was built at the end of the 19th century. You can admire the facade and get in when they have services. There is also a little park nearby.
