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.

This very attractive and stately church has historic roots as well as current attendees. Call ahead, because church is not always open.

My wife and I always enjoy visiting Bruton Parish when we visit Williamsburg. It gives you a living window in to history of how some of the citizens of Williamsburg worshipped during colonial times. It is a wonderful place to sit, pause, pray, and reflect.

This church is small and beautiful and historic. Many important early Americans worshiped here. It has a working organ that is still used for recitals today.

The pipe organ gets a lot of use for sure, between Sunday services, year-round Candlelight Concerts and organ scholars. Thank you for your visit and review.
