In 1993, with the blessing of Archbishop Alexy, a new church community was organized in the village of Akbulak.
In the same year, the Orthodox parish of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in honor of the Nativity of Christ was officially registered there. A small church was also erected, in which memorial services are still being served and baptismal procedures are being carried out. Today, on the territory of this parish there are: a small church (it is called a baptismal church) and a large church, which has 2 chapels. In addition, on the territory there are: an entrance group, a chapel, an administrative building, two residential buildings, a refectory, an icon shop. A path for religious processions has been laid around the Orthodox church, and the surrounding area is beautifully landscaped, fencing of the site has been made, planting flowers and trees, for example, a circular casing forming a kind of gazebo. Such a garden also has the symbolic meaning of a garden of eden.
In 1995, Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All Russia took part in laying the foundation stone of the new church.
On June 29, 1999, a dome was erected on the temple. The weight of the dome was 15 tons. The dome has not been reconstructed since then and is an architectural monument of those times.
In September 1999, a Sunday school was opened at the church. In this school, day and evening classes were held for all people who wanted to learn to read and write and the basic tenets of the Orthodox religion.
On January 7, 2000, the first Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the upper church of the Cathedral.
In 2014, there was a fire in a guest house on the territory of the parish. In the aftermath of the fire, a relatively small part of the cathedral was damaged.
For almost 20 years, the rector and builder of the Temple was Archpriest Alexander Osokin, now – Right Reverend Sebastian, Bishop of Karaganda and Shakhty.
Currently, the rector of the Temple is the Head of the Metropolitan District in the Republic of Kazakhstan, His Eminence Alexander, Metropolitan of Astana and Kazakhstan. The key keeper of the Temple is Archpriest Alexander Gaichenya.
