This article describes the method of strengthening a church building in Ruda Śląska against predicted effects of mining exploitation. The building had been already exposed to effects of 22 mining incidents which significantly damaged walls and vaults. Therefore, it was decided to strengthen the building before new exploitation works. Strengthening works included longitudinal walls support with the tendon system built over the vault support. Additionally, ribs were strengthened by suspending them to new reinforced concrete ribs placed over the existing ones. And precast concrete cube elements were used in new ribs.
