If I want to express I never go to church, which do I use ?
I never have been to the church
I never had been to the church
If it's not correct, please correct me, and what's the difference bewteen these two ?

With "have been" you mean you have never once in your life been to the church and it's true even now...

With "had been" you are probably talking in a context in wich you are saying something like "until last year i had never been to the church..." so this one is for something which doesn't applies to the present, but to a definite time in the past...

also not sure but i think never has to be in the middle...between have/had and been

so "...have/had never been..." not "...never have/had been..."

I have never been to church. This means that not once in my life I have entered a church
I had never been, seems incorrect, I have no knowledge if it can be written like this.

If you have been to a church in the past at least once, you could say.

I do not go to church, ever. This means that in the present, and for an undefined period of time you have decided not to go to church indefinitely (ever)
