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 church and cemetery grounds were amazing. I would not have expected to find a place like it in Wiliiamsburg.

Another history lesson for you. I hope you get to spend about five days in this area. If you are a history buff it is time well spent.

Thanks! A reminder that the Bruton Parish Shop is up and running with a great new look after remodel. Block and a half west of the church. Please stop in.

A still active and vibrant church with excellent volunteers who give a history of the church. If you want to get married in this church, you will have to be a member of the church for 2 years before you can be married there.

You can sit where Washington worshiped. Besides the beauty of this historic church, the history is incredible. Attend a service! The graveyard is a "don't miss."

We were able to enter the church and look around. There were church members volunteering who answered questions and showed focal points of the church. The inside was absolutely gorgeous! If you visit CW, make sure to visit this church. You won't be disappointed!
