"I was at church" would use "estar", not "ser", so it would be something like "Estuve en la iglesia".

I remember thinking "whaaaaaaahhh?" when I found out that "fui" and "fue" mean both "was" and "went", but now that I (sort of) know when to use "ser", I think there's probably very few cases where it's ambiguous.

Here's an interesting short article about this: http://spanishlinguist.us/2013/03/spanish-was-went/
