This is a working church. The gentlemen inside were so very friendly and very very informative. There was a choir later that night that we could have attended for no charge, but we never made it back. There is quite a lot of history here and you must add it to your list of things to do. There is no... More

I cannot say too much about this other than a very neat historic place to see. The staff are very friendly and enjoy telling about the history of the church and there is a lot to learn. A must see when visiting Williamsburg.

This is one of the Free attractions in Colonial Williamsburg, It is a very lovely church . The Volunteers sore ever ready to explain and share information. Just the thought of knowing and seeing the Church where likes of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson worshipped make you nostalgic. A must visit place.

I visited the church during the week, and I attended a service on Sunday. During the week they have volunteers from the church (its a active church with members and everything) who stand in the lobby and stuff and give visitors some history. They aren't dressed up old-timey, which would have been cool. The Sunday service was like any High-Church... More

One of the free activities in Colonial Williamsburg. Its a really nice Church with a lot of history in the town. It is still an active Church so if you're interested you could visit on Sunday for service. There isn't much to it so it's a quick stop along the way and on a hot day it helps you get... More

While services we letting out on Sunday afternoon, some of the parishioners leaving encouraged us to come in a look around. We even got some detailed history from one parishioner. Very pretty church.

This church is well your time. Although free to visit, they do ask for a dollar per person donation. This is a working church and if I had been in Williamsburg on Sunday. I would have loved to there for services.

Standing in this church was quite a thrill. To think that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other great forefathers worshipped. The history in this one location is wonderful
