    At the beginning of 2005 the temple in the name of the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Cyril and Methodius, teachers of Slovenian, was laid. It was in the village Mikhalkovo, Privokzalny district of Tula. The laying of the first stone was performed by the dean of the city of Tula, Archpriest Sergiy Rezukhin with Archpriest Father Sergius (Father Superior of St. Nicholas on Rust). The temple was built in record time: on September 21, 2006, the Day of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, it opened its doors for the churchgoers. Complete consecration of the temple was committed on June 1, 2008 by Archbishop Alexis of Tula and Belevsky and Archbishop of Yaroslavl and Rostov Kirill. A distinctive feature of the temple is that it is made entirely of larch logs. Forged lattice fencing was made by Revyakin craftsman Sergey Ulitin on the sketch of the Tula blacksmith Nikolai Firstov. The iconostasis was made in the Old Russian style and was written by the Brotherhood of the Holy Trinity Sergius Lavra. Carved vestments on the throne and the altar are also made by the Lavra brothers. There are shrines in the temple: the icon with the relics of St. Sergius of Radonezh, Iberian icon of Holy Mother, the icon with the relics of St. Prince Peter and Fevronia (where there is vesper with acaphistus with Metropolitan Alexy’s blessing every Friday at 17-00), the icon with the relics of Andrew Bogolyubsky, the icon of St.Righteous Anna Kashenskoy with the relics, the icon of the holy Russian land with relics, the icon of the Holy Mother "The Unfading Flower" with a part of the robe of the Most Holy Mother of God, the icon of the Рщдн Mother “the Unbreakable Wall” on the altar wall of the church, the icon of the Optina elders with relics, the icon of St. Blessed John Tulsky with a particle of relics. There is a Sunday school at the church. There is an old well near the temple. There are eight bells cast with the blessing of Archbishop Alexis of Tula and Belevsky on the wooden belfry. Near the temple there is a small playground and parking place.
