Temple history

According to the letter of Vasily Ivanovich in 1506, the lands of the modern church were granted to churches. According to historical documents, it is known that in 1628 a wooden church of St. Nicholas stood on this site.

In 1755-1767, at the expense of the parishioners, a new stone church was built in the name of the Epiphany with the chapel of St. Nicholas.

In 1822-1824, a large refectory was added to the church with aisles: on the right was the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos, on the left was the hierarch and wonderworker Nicholas, a two-tier bell tower and a stone chapel with a room for watchmen were built.

From the 1830s to the end of the century, the main philanthropist of the temple was the local industrialist Anisim Elagin and his children, mainly with their support, the temple was expanded, painted, and a fence was built. Other significant benefactors were the family of the manufacturer Shibaev.

In 1834, a two-story building was built, on the lower floor of the bell tower was placed the Bogorodsk Spiritual Board. The buildings were erected by the care of the rector Archpriest Nestor of Arkhangelsk and the head of Pankratia Starkov.

In 1853, at the request of the parishioners, the Metropolitan of Moscow and Kolomna Innokenty at the site of the temple allowed the construction of a new, more spacious cathedral. The new cathedral was lit September 5, 1876 under the rector of Demetrius of Hierapolis.

In 1885-1886, the bell tower was built on the third ring tier. And in 1890, a bell weighing 1250 pounds (20 tons) was raised to the bell tower - the largest in the county cities of Russia.

In 1891, guests of the city, Prince Sergei Alexandrovich, and his wife, the new martyr Elizaveta Fedorovna, participated in a prayer for the longevity of the royal house.

In 1895, an active church figure Konstantin Alekseevich Golubev was appointed rector of the cathedral.

In 1902, the cathedral was expanded according to the project of Nikolai Strukov. At the beginning of the century, the cathedral besides the church belonged to: two stone chapels, two two-story stone houses donated by parishioners, a one-story wooden church house, a wooden gatehouse (1896) and a brick shed.

According to the clearing sheets in 1902, the parishioners of the temple, there were about 2.5 thousand people.

For many years, the tradition was preserved - once a year, before the holidays, the miraculous icons of "The Flick of Christ by Judas" from the Berlukovskaya Desert and the Virgin of Jerusalem from Bronnitsy were brought.

Special days for the cathedral and the city were May 12 and 13, 1918, when Patriarch Tikhon and the future Patriarch Sergius served at the all-night service, 6 more archpastors served in the city district, and at the end of the liturgy on the 13th, a procession was held in which more than 100 thousand pilgrims participated . However, by that time the power was withdrawing to the God-worshipers, and already in the fall of 1918, the rector of the church, Father Konstantin, was arrested and accepted a martyr's death.

Since 1918, Nikolay Aleksandrovich Speransky became the rector of the cathedral, in 1933 he was arrested for the first time, on August 21, 1937 again, and on October 13 he was shot at the Butovo training ground.

In 1921-1925 it was the Cathedral of the Bishops of Bogorodsky (Believers), vicars of the Moscow diocese - Nikanor (Kudryavtsev) and Plato (Rudnev).

In 1923-1925, the future Patriarch Pimen sang in the choir in the bishop's choir. In 1924-1925, repairs were carried out in the amount of more than 8 thousand rubles (a significant amount for that time).

In the second half of the 1920s, all 13 bells were dropped from the bell tower, including the twenty-ton, which broke when it fell into small parts.

In autumn 1937, the entire church council of the cathedral and the new abbot, Sergei Zernov, were arrested, a little later the holy martyr Sergei Konstantinovich Makhaev, who replaced him, was arrested and shot, among the arrested was the martyr Nikolai Andreev who served in the church since 1917, in December he was shot. The days of remembrance of Sergiy Makhayev are November 19, Nikolai is November 27, they are commemorated at the Cathedral of the New Martyrs of Russia, at the Cathedral of Butovo New Martyrs and at the local Cathedral of the New Martyrs of Bogorodsky - November 20.

In 1938, the divine services ceased, the temple began to serve material purposes - boot-making and dyeing was organized, and a gas distribution station was opened.

In 1953, the Noginsky Executive Committee attempted to break the domes and dismantle the bell tower, but the temple was saved.

In 1989, the cathedral was consecrated again, services were resumed and the gradual restoration of the temple began.

In 1991, on the way from Moscow to Diveevo, a procession of the cross with a large gathering of people, the relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov, were carried around the city and near the church.

From 1989 to 1997, the rector of the church was Archimandrite Adrian (Starina), who transferred in 1993 to the bosom of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kiev Patriarchate, whose religious community still exists in Noginsk under his leadership. In November 1997, the temple was forcibly taken from the UOC-KP and transferred to the Russian Orthodox Church.

October 2, 2004 relics were transferred to the temple Konstantin Bogorodsky.

Manor Volkhonka

Volkhonka is a property belonging to the noble family of Volkonsky, who over the years have been able to create a magnificent garden with a variety of exotic trees. This picturesque place on the high bank of the Klyazma River in the XVII century, the Moscow boyar Alexei Volkonsky chose for his future summer estate. The estate included a two-story house, to which linden alleys led, and an artificial pond was created in the park. The Volkonsky family owned the estate for over 150 years.

For many years, the Volkonsky estate was a kind of cultural center, because many Russian cultural figures have been here more than once. Among the guests of the estate there were famous actors Mochalov, Lensky and Schepkin, the famous archaeologist Zabelin, as well as the outstanding historian Granovsky, the author of a textbook on general history. Thanks to the magnificent local landscapes and climate features, it became possible to carry out various activities to equip the garden and park.Its creators managed to grow many exotic plants and foreign trees, which became the basis of the future arboretum. To this day, the lime park that once surrounded the house has been preserved.

After the revolution, the estate became state property and was transferred to the Bogorodsk University "Labor and Science". Through the efforts of the scientists of this university, the Volkonsky estate and the territory adjacent to it were turned into a reserve, a survey was carried out, work was done on acclimatization and plant breeding, educational events and excursions were organized. Until the 40s, Volkhonka flourished as an arboretum, but in the post-war years it began to fall into disrepair, and today only linden alleys remind of its former splendor.

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The temple had ancient rare icons, two valuable gospels, printed in Moscow in 1703? 1730, and many other shrines.

After the revolution, the temple operated in it was served by priest Alexy (holy martyr Alexy Alexandrovich Speransky). To avoid being accused of parasitism, he combined pastoral service with work in the forge. At the end of November 1937 he was arrested and shot and buried on December 10 at the Butovo training ground. Soon after the arrest of the priest, the temple was closed and ruined.

Church services resumed in 1990.
