Not far from Lake Telbin, which is located on Bereznyaki, on March 28, 1998, at the construction site of the future temple complex, the consecration and laying of the first stone took place. On the same day, construction began on a 2-story church with two altars in honor of the Nativity and Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The consecration of the temple by the bishop’s rite was carried out on January 23, 2000. On December 30, 2006, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the opening of the parish, the dome and bells were raised to the bell tower, and the Metropolitan of Kiev and All Ukraine, the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, His Beatitude Vladimir, consecrated the chapel – the source and site for the construction of the future cathedral.
In October 2011, a Sunday school for children from 6 to 12 years old was opened in one of the premises of the cultural and educational center. Today there are about 70 children studying there. On December 13, 2011, on the day of remembrance of St. Andrew the First-Called (a monument to whom was erected on the territory of the temple complex), another significant event took place, timed to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the first Divine Liturgy in Bereznyaki – the consecration of crosses was carried out, their raising and installation on domes of the Cathedral in honor of the Nativity of Christ, which was completely built in 2014.
On the second floor of the cultural and educational center building, on November 25, 2012, a prosphora pan was equipped and consecrated, where prosphora for the church will henceforth be baked. Nowadays the complex consists of a large and small church, which in turn consists of a church in honor of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a baptistery church in honor of the Baptism of the Lord, a church in honor of the Three Saints and a church in honor of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary; bell tower, cultural and educational center and monument to St. Andrew the First-Called.
