Restored in 2008-2009, re-consecrated on October 13, 2009 by Bishop Mark of Yegorievsk in the presence of visiting China for a visit of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Participants in the roundtable, “Compatriots and the Russian Orthodox Church: the experience of working together in Asia” which was held in Beijing, attended the liturgy in the temple at the Embassy of December 11, 2011. In worship and prayer parishioners – embassy officials and compatriots living in Beijing prayed at the divine service.
