We were in a nightmare maze of constructed tunnels and caves. Nobody knows their extent.” and then the structures under Williamson’s house: “They are grotesque beyond description; words fail to give an adequate idea of their appearance. Dungeons carved out of the solid rock, with no light and no ventilation, the only access being through a heavy wooden door, vaults with a roof of four arches meeting in the centre in a manner that present-day builders would not think of attempting; monstrous wine bins with many stone partitions for enormous quantities of bottles; massive erections of masonry and stone benches - all apparently without the slightest objective or motive.”

The order of the knights templar was officially "terminated" in 1312. Some were killed, some merged into other orders like the hospitallers (these which took the templar's assets) and others turned into "new orders" like the portuguese order of the knights of christ (or order of christ as you wish).
So the church is "post-templar" dissolution. Of course... some say it continued. And they did, altho under other names but not "templars".
