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 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.

So glad we were able to see the inside of this church. Very Old and Beautiful building FULL of History. The volunteers were very helpful and knowledgeable- answering questions. The church is still active/open, members of the church are actually the volunteers.

Don't miss the late night candlelit organ concert on New Year's Eve! My family attended it for years and always had a dinner reservation at The King's Arms or Christina Campbell's afterwards. There is nothing prettier than Colonial Williamsburg over the holiday season! No plastic...More

It is fun to think about Christmas when it is so hot outside. Yes, the greening of the church is in mid-December, with beautiful wreaths and pine roping that remain in place through the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you for the review!

The Burton Parish Church volunteers gave us the best history lesson on what is was like to go to church in Revolutionary times. We commend their enthusiastic presentation to all who visit Williamsburg.
