I would just put “reception to follow at X” then have the pastor make an announcement after the ceremony that dinner will be served at the church. That seems easier than trying to explain it all on the invite.

I would put the name of the church on the invite and have a seperate insert for the reception. On the reception card list the time and place for dinner and the later location and time for drinking and dancing. I would want the guest to know ahead of time the timeline and locations just in case someone was running late, had to leave early, arranging transporation ect. I don’t think that reception cards are necessary (although etiquette rules suggest them if the reception is in a serperate location), but it your case it would probably mean less confusion for your guest!

How about something like this… (I faked your venue names)… 

Ceremony – 3pm – St Pat Church

Dinner – 4:30pm – St Pat Church Dining Hall

Cocktail reception – 6pm – Crazy Club

If your church has a name for their hall (as many do) you can list it to sound even more official. Like “St Pat Church – Miller Hall.”
