Out and About

On June 25, St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Moscow launched an $8 million international appeal to restore its Victorian-era buildings, located near Ulitsa Tverskaya. The only example of English Gothic architecture in Russia, the church was constructed in 1882. In Soviet times, it was used as a recording studio for state record company Melodia, but in 1995 then-Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin ordered the return of the property to the religious community. Today St. Andrew’s is officially part of the Church of England, whose traditions it represents for a diverse, international community here in Moscow. The actual restoration, to be conducted in cooperation with the Historical Preservation Institutes in Moscow, is set to begin in 2009, with completion projected by the end of 2012.
