The Rock Church seems to be an incomplete addition to the game. It's not fully programmed in the same way other buildings are, as it's missing a lot of attributes of a building. Placing the building in the Scenario Editor plays the same sound as placing a Wonder, though the building doesn't function as one, and doesn't start the Wonder countdown. It also has no icons assigned to it, nor any visible stats. Only the health can be seen.
Like the Monument, the building can't be deleted in-game once placed, nor can it be attacked. This makes the building invulnerable. If the Rock Church is assigned to an enemy team, it can be easily claimed if a player team gets near it. It cannot be reclaimed by an enemy after this happens.
- The Rock Church is based on the Church of Saint George, a rock-cut monolithic church in Lalibela, a town in Ethiopia.
