What we did was just tell them that we had limited space, and were only inviting close friends and family.  We told them that we wish we could invite everyone we wanted to but the venue space just won’t allow it.

Can’t you just give invitations to the ones that you want to be there? And just make an annoucement that you will be getting married in the church program.

just be honest with your friends, say “you know that was the hardest part about wedding plans was limiting our guest list to fit our venue(they will assume it was small), we wish we could invite everyone, but it just wasnt feesable, we hope to get together with you soon after the wedding. (or hope to see you at [insert next big function here]), i hope you understand”

as for the church, its not uncommon for a general invitation to be for the congregation for the ceremony only, this allows people to witness you get married in their church, but doesnt extend the invitation to the reception. if the size of the church is your concern, tell your dad not to extend the invite to more than x people.
