Holy Virgin Protection Church in Gorodnya Pokrovskoe

Это случилось в 1722 году, в конце царствования Петра I. Долгое время храм Покрова на Городне оставался единственным каменным строением в селе, к началу XX века весь комплекс церковного подворья представлял собой законченный архитектурный ансамбль. Храм был закрыт в 1938 году. В пустующем здании в разное время находились клуб, зернохранилище и фабрика "Металлист". В конце 1990 года члены церковного прихода вместе с жителями района стали расчищать территорию. Первый молебен состоялся в 1990 году на улице возле храма, а в 1991 году к Пасхе освятили первый придел, в храме начались богослужения...
