Would " mikä kirkko on tämä" not be correct ?

The place of copula (on) is the same in statements and interrogative questions. If it becomes onko (to which one can answer "on") it goes before the subject e.g. "Onko tämä kirkko vanha?" (or: vanha kirkko)

You can say that too, but it doesn't sound as natural as having "on" at the end.
