In 1903 the foundation of the church was laid. The church was named after three saints of the Orthodox Church – Vasily Veliky, Grigory Bogoslov and Ioann Zlatoust. Construction was based on the design of a court counselor and province architect P.Kalinin. The church was built for voluntary contributions. The construction works took 11 years and finished in 1914.

With some breaks the church held services till 1959. In 1961 the church was closed: the bell tower, dome and crosses were ruined. And the former church became a club of “Strommashina” Plant. Dancing parties and later the disco club “Rezonans” were held here.

The way to the church’s revival was very long.Mogilev and Mstislavl eparchy was restored and headed by Archbishop Maxim. And only 30 years later on December, 25 1989 due to his efforts and letters of church people the church was consecrated and began public services.

The main sacred object of the church is the list of the miracle-working icon of Our Lady “Mogilevsko-Bratskaya”. There is also the icon of saint Nikolai with relics, the lists of the icon of Our Lady “Belynichskaya” and of the icon of Our Lady “Barkolabovskaya”, the icon of Euphrosyne of Polotsk that was made in 1910 to dedicate transportation and link of Euphrosyne’s saint relics in Mogilev when they were moved from the Kiev lavra of the Caves to Polotsk.
