It's not exacly what you asked, but in Milan, inside the Saint Ambrose Basilica, there's a chapel wich is probably one of the oldest preserved (it dates from the early IV century, some decades before the foundation of the Basilica, with mosaics of the V century).
"San Vittore in ciel d'oro" chapel.

I don't think the original church has been preserved.

It can be one of the oldest churches but Mar Sargiz Church seems to be from early 3rd century:



Assyrians were the first nation to accept Christianity, the Assyrian Church was found in 33 AD.

La Merced Church, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala.

"After being destroyed twice by earthquakes the Merced Church in Antigua, Guatemala was resurrected in 1767. The yellow and white Baroque façade looks like an elaborately decorated cake.

Like all of the churches and cathedrals in Antigua the interior by comparison is modest. When Antigua lost its capital status to Guatemala City following another earthquake in 1773, its more decadent interior details were moved to a church in that city.

The Merced Church’s low, squat bell towers built to better withstand earthquakes are typical of Antigua."
