We decided, on our first morning in Colonial Williamsburg, to attend the church service before we explored the other historic sites. We're so glad we did. It was a very good service and the congregation was so nice. They welcomed us with open arms.

This is an original structure, not a re-creation. This is still a functioning church and additionally they contribute to the education of visitors to Williamsburg who visit their church. It is interesting on Sundays to be there as Colonial Williamsburg begins to give way to modern Williamsburg when the roads are reopened in the evenings and cars begin moving about... More

This is not part of the restoration, the church is original and has always been in operation. Speak to the docents who will explain who sat where and why, and how the organ works. Donate a dollar or two, they don't get money from your pass for the rest of the city.

Historic back to Thomas Jefferson's early days. Still in historic condition, plus modern facilities (including organ). Volunteers are present to tell the many stories related to the Church and Parish. Donations are requested to maintain the facility. They also have a book shop and gift shop down the street.

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
