Foundation for construction of a new church in the name of Saint Nikolai was consecrated in the village Bishkain, Aurgazinski region of Bashkortostan, by the bishop of Salavat and Kumertau Nikolai together with the clergy of Salavat eparchy.
Earlier the church in the name of Saint Nikolai already existed in the village, where about 1200 people lived, but because of dilapidation it was taken down. New church will be erected on the same place. Foundation for it was laid in 2012 up to the ground level. In 2013 local authorities intend to finish foundation construction and completion date of the project will depend upon the means, donated by believers.
