The Ukrainian pioneers who settled the area, which eventually became the village of Wostok, began construction of their church in 1900. They erected a simple log structure with a small central dome adorning the peak of its shingled roof. In the early years the Bukowina faithful were served by priests from the Russian Orthodox Mission at Sachava.

Although priests with the newly formed Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church of Canada held a mission at St. Nicholas in July 1920, the congregation remained loyal to the Russian Orthodox Church. Part of the Orthodox Church in America since 1970, St. Nicholas has the honour of being the oldest original church in Lamont County.
