The Church of St. Nicholas

A beautiful new church for the people of Sredneuralsk.

The Church of St Nicholas in Sredneuralsk was built with the support of the Forum Group and the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company (UMMC).

This charitable project replaced a temporary, smaller wooden church in the town, which had been built three years ago. The new church, which stands at 32m high from the footing to the cross, has room for up to 500 people.

The interior is decorated with two beautiful porcelain iconostases, which were created using the traditional methods of Matvey Kuznetsov, the founder of the Russian porcelain industry. These iconostases feature an image of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker on a striking turquoise background.

Following the completion of the church, Archbishop Vikenty presented Patriarchal letters, awards and medals to the sponsors. The Forum Group received the Order of St Seraphim of Sarov III Degree; the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company was awarded the Icon of the Mother of God ‘The Unfading Flower’.
