Wow she is pressuring your parents?! Super inappropriate! I would maybe just sit her down and politely say something like, “we love you and know you have the best intentions by asking us to go to Church, but we do not share those beliefs and are not going to start going to church regularly. Your frequent comments about it have started to make me and my parents uncomfortable so we wanted to discuss it with you. If we do decide to look for a church in the future you will be the first one we call.” Or something like that.

Good luck!

Be completely honest with her. Say you don’t mind going from time to time, but that’s it. 

My mom tried that same thing, kept telling my DH and me that we better show our faces at Sunday mass. 

We never went once. 

The priest still married us.
