Bruton Parish Church is open daily to visitors with or without a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket. A donation of one dollar per person is gratefully accepted to go toward upkeep of the church and churchyard. This is the third building in the history of Bruton Parish, in continuous use since 1715. All are welcome to attend a brief service of noonday prayer during the week, and Sunday services, held at 7:30, 9:15, and 11:15 am and 5:30 pm. Bruton Parish Church is an active congregation of the Episcopal Church, therefore we close for tours during weddings, funerals or scheduled services.

Apparently this church was started in around 1680 and restored in around 1910. I'm not sure how much it was restored to its original configuration. But, it appeared to have a lot of original elements. The most striking thing to me was the boxed pews....More

Join us for a service on the Third Sunday of Advent (December 17) at 7:30, 9:15 or 11:15 in the morning or 5:30 in the evening. The church will be adorned with natural greens, wreaths and roping-- a long tradition at Bruton Parish.

A church full of history and a wonderful place to catch one of their frequent free concerts. Come a bit early as some seating has no view of the front of the church where the musicians will be seated.

This church did not have the traditional stain glass windows -] and was rather plain compared to most Episcopal churches. There were pews that were marked on the ends where the various presidents and other members of the day sat.

The candlelight concerts (a 300 year tradition) is a meaningful hour in this original Williamsburg structure. take the time to read the plaques and original pew owners.

Sunday afternoon, December 3, stop by our concessions at the Parish House from 2:00-6:00. Proceeds benefit The Episcopal Church at William and Mary. Lots of good things to eat and drink.

We just happen to be in Williamsburg on a Sunday and the church was open for service....what a neat experience! In between, they have speakers to tell you about the history of the building/service and folks who attended

The church is neat, in that the pews of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other founding fathers are marked. I enjoyed the grounds and headstones. Services are still held at the church and free concerts are given on certain evenings.
