The church was founded in 1956 by a Russian immigrant Reader Evphimiy Shishkoff. He had fled  perscution in Russia and while a refugee in Persia, made a promise while praying that if he and his family survived he would build a church in honour of the icon. Against the odds he was able to migrate to Australia. He began to make good on his promise when he bought land in Rocklea in 1956 to build the church.  After that church became too small the present church was built and consecrated in the 1990's. Work is still ongoing. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 7/8/2017.
