In 1894 , a wooden church was built in honor of St. Theodosius on the site of a modern church. Over time, it was decided to build a larger stone temple and in 1903 it was laid. The construction was led by the provincial architect E. Skavronsky, the builder of the Catholic Church in Tula . Due to lack of funding and the outbreak of World War I , the construction of the temple was not completed. In 1918 , it was decided to place the school in the temple building, but it was given over to the warehouse.
In 1990 , the church was transferred to the diocese and consecrated in honor of the Protection of the Virgin . In 1993 , the building was badly damaged due to a fire. Most of the church utensils burned down, miraculously managed to save the icon of John of Tula and the mantle of St. Theodosius . In 2000 , a parish school opened in the church. Later, a library, the Orthodox Youth Movement and the Sobriety Society appeared.
