Common Cause was founded in as a project dedicated to restoring and rebuilding wooden churches of the Russian north that were neglected, repurposed, and destroyed during the long years of soviet rule. Work has been carried out on more than churches in trips over the years. Services were held in the Chapel of St. Makary of Zheltovoda in the Arkhangelsk Province and in more than other such churches.

This is the result of both migration eastward from various German provinces as well as the numerous boundary changes that took place over Polish regions from the Partitions of the late s through to WW II.
