We heard the Saint Gertrude High School Honors Ensemble from Richmond, Va sing at a Candlelight Concert on December 11th. The ensemble is comprised of young people with outstanding voices and musical ability on the church organ. The selection of festive songs, carols, and music made it the evening very enjoyable. The place was crowded.

As a non-Anglican it was interesting to me to see the church itself with its plaques describing many of its colonial patriots. There are many concerts in the evening and it's worth taking time to attend as there is an atmosphere you're not likely to find in many other places in the US.

Love visiting the historic area at Christmas. When we visit we always try to get to Bruton Parish Church for at least one choir concert. It's an amazing venue. They invite high schools from the area to perform. We saw a group from Richmond and they were fabulous. The structure of the church is something to see. If you're visiting... More

The Colonial Williamsburg restoration is surronded by a modern city that includes The College of William and Mary. It is a college/tourism town. There are some building in the restored area that are not open for tourists,that are still private homes. There is also the Bruton Parish Church. You are welcome to visit and to attend the noon prayer service... More

Over the years we have visited this church many times. The most recent in Dec 2014. We not only visited in the morning, but attended a Christmas concert in the evening. The attendants were very good at getting the large crowd seated. Being a Christian, we found this historical church a true treasure to visit.

One of the truly historic buildings in Williamsburg, don't miss it! Check out the graveyard as well. They're a bit forward with the suggested donation, but it's worth going to one of the concerts or a service.

Lovely building that is still offering services today! The pipe organ in the church is an instrument that each visitor should make a point to see while in Williamsburg.

An active church that was the center of religious life in 18th century Williamsburg. Still active with frequent special events and concerts for visitors to experience.

We attended a Christmas concert one evening at the church. The concert was put on by another church. We enjoyed it. The star of the show was the architecture of the building though. Gorgeous! It was neat to think colonists worshiped there long ago. We understand that even 50% of the glass in the windows is original. The concert was... More
