DREAM DICTIONARY - Church :

Churches in dreams will often link to something which you firmly believed. This will often have no religious connection at all. The dream is merely showing that you had a complete faith in this. Usually the dream will mark the moment when this belief was shaken. Often church dreams will just capture this simple feeling - "I really believed that totally but now I know it not to be true".

Churches can also signify moments when you have been trying to behave in a moral way or when you have been encouraging others to live in a more moral way. Try to think how this may apply to you. Are you worried about someones bad behaviour and are you trying to show them the way? Did you try to behave in a just and honest way yesterday? Did you try to show some great kindness?
