AFAIK it was constructed as a "church" (as a place of worship, anyway), but if you took down the signage and started to use it for another purpose, there would be no evidence that it ever used to be a place of worship; the construction *style* is absolutely *not* what is typically associated with a "church".
I would defer to decisions/interpretations of a local community, but if something like that appeared in
Poland I would tag it as building=supermarket (it matches exactly supermarket building, at least
from outside).

NOTE: I am unfamiliar with this specific type of architectural monstrosity, maybe
it should be handled differently.

maybe some term can capture this well

Here building=church makes *some* sort of sense

Maybe, GSV is too far away to allow remote tag theorethizing.
