The Church was built in 1774 in Karacharovo Village, beyond Pokrovskiye Gate, on the Kolomenka River, instead of two wooden tented-roof churches, the Church of Three Saints and Our Lady of the Sign Church.

The high altar, dedicated to the Life-Giving Trinity, was consecrated in June of 1776. The side chapel of the Our Lady of the Sign Icon — in 1782. The bell tower's lower tier was constructed in 1780, the upper tier — in 1833 to 1834.

In the 19th century, a refectory with a side chapel of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker (reconstructed in 1904–1905) was added. The Church was damaged by the 1904 hurricane.

In 1910, a bell of 600 poods (9828 kg or 21667 lb.) in weight was mounted with contributions of peasants. The main contributor was peasant V. Kalugin. All people, old and young, went to meet the bell and carry it from Perovo Station to the Church.

In the 1930s, the Church was shut down. The building was occupied by Workshop No. 2 of the Experimental and Mechanical Factory of clothing industry and a sculpture studio. The dome was destroyed. The bell tower was demolished to the first tier. The Church was reconstructed. The fence gates survived.

In 1993, the building was handed back to the Church. Services were resumed. Children's choir is held in the Church.

Sacred objects include a feretory with relics of St. Gregory of Nazianzus, St. Spyridon, the Venerable Zeno of Pechersk, the Venerable Fyodor Zanotsarsky (Mordovia), the holy hierarch Philaret, St. Innocent the Metropolitan of Moscow, and St. Theophan the Bishiop.
