I spend the better of two days touring Colonial Williamsburg. Bruton Parish Church is one of the Treasures of the Colonial City. First and Foremost Bruton Parish Church is a house of worship and visitors should be reverent and respectful. The church is one of the oldest churches in the United States. Tours are conducted by members of the church... More

Were lucky enough to be able to attend Good Friday Service - amazing to think worshiping and praying where Founding Fathers had. Service was simple and beautifully done. So grateful that still an active parish and grandchildren could experience an important part of American history and heritage for real and not via a computer game.

Had to peek through the key hole, as a service was in progress, but it was neat for our young children to see this old church.

We happened to be in Williamsburg during our Spring Break, coinciding with Palm Sunday. Seeing posters of events that included a harp concert on Saturday night, we paid attention to the various service times for Sunday. We arrived early at about 9:05 a.m. to find a large group of folks gathered outside the historic church waiting to process in with... More

Not only a wonderful and historic house of worship, but a terrific venue for the many musical offerings provided there. It is a very rare evening spent in the sanctuary listing that you don't come away refreshed spiritually and culturally.

We visited this church in colonial Williamsburg in April 2015. Its cemetery, exterior, and interior are beautiful and extremely interesting. The tour guides inside were so gracious and knowledgeable. It was a real pleasure to go here and see plaques of the amazingly impressive former parishioners/attendees (Thomas Jefferson and George Washington)! (They do ask for a voluntary contribution of $1... More

We have visited this church over many years! Lots of history about famous people who once worshipped here starting in the late 1700's! A must see while strolling down the main drag of Old Town Williamsburg! So Beautiful inside!!!

The outside of the church (on the main street in Colonial Williamsburg) is the original materials and the inside has been reconstructed. The guides are excellent in telling visitors about who the worshippers were and interesting facts about them.

This Church, and its cemetery, are remnants of our past that you can walk into, you can feel the hundreds of footprints that went before in the impressions they made on the stone pathways and stone steps. The Church staff were so knowledgeable, and gave so freely of their knowledge in the history of the building, the customs of the... More
