Age of Empires Series Wiki

Transforms into a Church for colony improvements and unique improvements.
—In-game description

The Church Wagon is a wagon in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties that can only be obtained by the namesake shipment sent from the Consulate by a Japanese player if they choose the Dutch as their ally (requires a level 25 Home City). It builds a Church for free.

Home City Cards[]

As the Church Wagon is exclusive to the Japanese, only other civilizations' TEAM cards that affects them are listed here.


  • The Church Wagon always speaks Dutch even though it can only be obtained by the Japanese. This is also the case with Bank Wagon and Arsenal Wagon.
  • In The Asian Dynasties, due to a bug, the Church that is built by this wagon always uses the British Church variant in the Colonial/Fortress Age instead of using the Dutch variants, and cannot train Spies. This was corrected in the Definitive Edition, where the Church built by this wagon uses the Dutch variants through the Ages and can train Spies.
