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.

The parish is a delightful experience for gaining a glimpse of religious life in colonial Williamsburg. The guides provide as much or as little information as the visitor seeks. It is a beautiful setting and the history is engaging.

We stopped at this church on a guided tour of Colonial Williamsburg. The history of who worshipped here is very interesting. We sat in George Washington's pew. Yes, they had assigned pews.

Sunday, Sept 17 six of us barely arrived on time for worship at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church before the white-robed choir, who were lined up outside, went in. Services were 7:30a, 9:15a, and 11:15a. Put 331 W Duke of Gloucester in your GPS for Sunday...More

Thanks for the helpful information. CW buses will take you from the Visitor Center to the historic area/Bruton Parish. Another option is to park in the (free) lot on Nassau between Francis and Duke of Gloucester Streets. Glad you could join us.

This quaint church humbled me as I walked where great men once worshipped. It was educational and inspiring. Definitely worth the visit.

This church is full of US history, many statement of the era attended church or visited here. The architecture is beautiful and the construction has lasted for over 300 years.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson have prayed here and more. Add yourself to this history! Right next to all the main attractions in the center of town. A must see

This is part of the Williamsburg experience, but is actually an active church. It is interesting to see the pews with the names of historical figures on them. The building itself is great to see and the guides (volunteers from the church) are informative.

Hope you got a chance to stop in the Bruton Parish Shop, a block and a half west of the church. Christmas merchandise is in! Thank you for the review.
