Built in 1978-82 in Żwaków District. Stanisław Niemczyk was the architect responsible for the design and the interior was covered with icons made by Master Jerzy Nowosielski. Thus, Tychy may be proud of the masterpieces of the artist commonly perceived as one of the most outstanding artist in Poland after 1945. When professor Nowosielski saw the building, said: ‘This is the church I’ve been waiting for. For the first time after the war I see a sacral architecture, for you can see only sacral structures everywhere.’ The church is shaped like a tent, which corresponds both to biblical times and Polish wooden churches. Due to its unique form, the church became an object of interest for the mass media, and in 1983 it received 1st Prize of the Association of Polish Architects for its architecture. It is also included in the art textbook for secondary schools and in publications about Nowosielski.
