Overview

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. This is the third building in the history of Bruton Parish, in continuous use since 1715. Bruton Guides are volunteers, on hand to speak with visitors. All are welcome to attend a brief prayer service at 12 noon weekdays, and Sunday services, which are held at 7:30, 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Bruton Parish Church is an active congregation of The Episcopal Church, therefore we close for tours during weddings, funerals or other scheduled services. Posted at the church is the schedule for this week's Candlelight Concerts-- free to enter, with an offering collected. To complete your visit, be sure to see The Bruton Parish Shop and Heritage Center, a block and a half west of the church, open daily--gifts, books, jewelry, accessories and an exhibit of parish history with the original weather vane and 1907 bible.

Operated and maintained separately from Colonial Williamsburg management. Church members are on hand to provide information. The uniqueness of this church is that each row of pews has doors that can be locked from the inside. Each row has a family name on it. There...More

When you visit Colonial Williamsburg this stop is not complete without stopping here. Learn the importance and expectations of the time for the community living within city limits

As a minister, I was impressed to visit a place where worship has been actively practiced since the 18th century. Air-conditioned now, it is still a great place to visit and pray.

A must stop in your colonial visit. Provides a time to reflect on our founders dependence on religious guidance. The church's location on the main street, squarely in the midst of the political seats of power, clearly reveals the perceived importance of employing spiritual values...More

See comments in my Williamsburg review. Very friendly parishoners and ushers. Historic gounds, pipe organ. Service lasted about an hour. Liturgical service.
