Interesting to see where so many of the founders went to church when they were in town.Still an active parish as well.
We attended the church service on Sunday, December 8. It was very different from our traditional Methodist Service but also very interesting and exciting to be in a church attended by our Founding Fathers. The Congregation was very kind to us as tourists, helping us to find our way through the hymnal and prayer book.
I had a tour and it was very interesting. The pews were high to preserve heat& had markers of people who attended the church. We also returned for a candlelight organ concert. Def a must see
History surrounds you, as does the history of the USA! You can read the name plaques on the back of the church pews--just like a history review! The cemetery is peaceful and is quite pretty in the Spring.
Loved the organ concert and sitting in pews where the Founding Fathers worshipped. Like the gift shop too. Staff are nice - wonderful volunteers.
If they have one scheduled, please go! Artists are from the college, very talented. It was very peaceful to sit in this beautiful old church and listen to music performed on period instruments.
Our tour guide was a parishioner of the church who was very knowledgeable. She explained the history of the church and how the current active congregation differs. She did this without trying to sway anyone's own beliefs. It's a beautiful church and it's amazing to walk in the graveyard and see all the old headstones. There is no fee but... More
We were lucky to be out walking one evening when the Bruton Church was having a free concert. We heard a wonderful harpsichord concert. We learned that the church has three musical concerts a week all year long. It was a real treat! (donations accepted)
We have enjoyed spending a beautiful evening at the historic Bruton Parish Episcopal Church listening to a fantastic organ concert! This was the atmosphere not many places could offer, we were lucky to be able to participate at the event! Thank you for the opportunity!
