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.

I happened to be in Williamsburg on Sunday and found that there was a prayer service. Although I am not Episcopalian or even religious, I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in Thomas Jefferson's pew and participating in the service.

I am so sorry for the confusion you felt. It was the usual service we hold every Sunday, with the added music at various times in the liturgy. I hope you will give us the chance to welcome you again in the future.

The church, while similar to many older ones I've seen, does have a very interesting history. Again, learned new facts seeing it a second time.More

The Bruton Parish Church is an active church located on the corner of Duke of Gloucester Street and the Palace Green in Colonial Williamsburg. It is definitely worth your time to visit the church (where there are people available to answer questions and provide information)....More
