Tyumen “Holy Trinity” Reformed Church


Our church is Presbyterian in government and Reformed in theology.  We are a protestant Christian denomination.  The word Presbyterian is related to the Greek word "presbuteros" which means Elder.  Our church is governed by ruling elders, one of which is the pastor.  Reformed theology is a product of the protestant reformation.    We hold to the teachings of the reformers, more particularly as enumerated in the Westminster Confession of Faith, and Larger and Shorter Catechisms.




In the late 90s a small group Bible Study was formed in Tyumen. For several years, the group met in their home in a warm family atmosphere.  They came to know God by studying His Word.


In autumn 2000, the group decided to organize a Church.  That Christmas first protocol on the establishment of the Church "Holy Trinity" was adopted on December 25, 2000.   The church was to be based upon Reformed Theology and the Presbyterian form of church government. The first pastor of the Church became Vladimir Cherniavsky. The local religious organization Tyumen Christian Presbyterian Church "Holy Trinity" received its official registration on April 28, 2001.


Today,  "Holy Trinity"  Church - is a group of believers who serve God and their fellow man. During the week the church hosts a variety of spiritual programs and social events: Sunday services are in Russian and English, basics of the Christian faith, children's and youth ministry, Bible study in English and Russian, separate meetings for men and women to fellowship and pray together, social service for people with chemical dependency and other social services for the good of the city and its inhabitants, and to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.


For many years, the Church has been a member of the “Council of Christian Churches of Tyumen".  This council sponsors events such as the "Great Christmas Concert", "City Easter concert", "Family Day" and others.

The work of "Holy Trinity Church" is to be an oasis of comfort, joy, peace among the world's deserts. We seek to bring people into the family of God, to promote their spiritual growth and knowledge of God for His glorification.

A word from our Pastor


Psalm 119:105 " 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."


About our Church

505 years ago men like Martin Luther and John Calvin rescued the church and returned it to its true foundation.  That foundation is the Word of God.  Thus was born the idea Sola Scripture (by the scriptures alone).   My wish for you is that you will return to God’s word.  May you find, with God’s help, a lamp unto your feet, so that when the world seems to be in chaos around you, or it seems that your life is falling apart, you will find Peace in God. It will bring us great joy to see you in God’s Family.
