Having an aisle runner and decorating the inside/outside of the aisle with tulle or some other kind of fabric would be a great start to lighten up the space and distract from the red and green.  You could also use cheap ribbon or crepe paper to cover some of the brickwalls or possibly for around the altar space.

It’s kind of hard to tell the shape of the room from the posted picture, but I think it would look nice if you arranged the chairs in more a semi circle shape instead of straight across rows.

I agree with previous posters, an isle runner is a must, lukely they can be pretty inexpensive. Also it looks like the chairs are not in a straight isle is that something fixable? You would really only need to decorate the back rock of the chairs that you obviously see the backs of. Tulle is cheap and a little goes a long way, It is easy to make big poofy tule bows for the end chairs of the isle, you wouldn’t even need one on every end, every other would do fine, and something pretty for your altar. if flowers are not a possibility look in to a cover or similar bows again. Also if your church regularly does weddings, funerals, winter services they might allready have some neutral (hopefully white?) covers / flowers for the altar. Something to look in to.

Your colors will go well with the brick so that’s one less thing to worry about. It is also simply way too much wall to cover on any normal budget.

Your guests won’t really care or notice the colors of the carpet or chairs. It’s only in the pics that they will show. Once your guests are seated only the back row of chairs will be visible, so i would concentrate any coverup there.

An aisle runner will take away most of the mint green, as again, once the guests are seated, you won’t see the rest of the carpet.
