This church was a critical centerpoint in the lives of colonials. Citizens of Colonial Virginia did not enjoy the same religious freedoms as is now the norm. There is also a sharp contrast between the society of Virginia and that of their New England counterparts...More

This is a must see if you're wandering around Colonial Williamsburg. The graveyard is full of old headstones and markers, which are just as interesting as the church itself, and for a small donation you can make your way inside. Once inside, make sure to...More

It is very satisfying to sit in the old building and listen to their concerts. We have done this before. This trip, it was the church organist performing various things on both organ and harpsichord. She is quite talented. Do take in this place when...More

You are greeted by members of the church that are very knowledgable of the history. Make sure to listen to several different hosts. Don't forget to tour the public part of the grounds as well.

The organ is being replaced, so the church is undergoing some construction, and the new organ will not be installed until spring 2019. Nevertheless, volunteers take you into the church and provide history and an explanation of how the church served in colonial times. It's...More

Just as much as last year. One must visit the church for its historical value. There always seem to be volunteers ready and willing to answer questions. I would also recommend going to the "store" they have nearby; there are some nice things there.

Each time we visit Colonial Williamsburg (3rd visit), we enjoy an organ concert. Sweet staff welcome you in as you prepare to be blessed in this very special part of Colonial Williamsburg's history.

Active Episcopal Church, open to the public. If you are interested, there are services you may attend. There are also concerts/recitals scheduled periodically. So rich in history. They do ask for a small donation, and it is well worth it.More

In early October our current pipe organ will begin to be removed. It dates largely from 1955 but also in part from the 1930s, the 1970s, and the 1990s and has served Bruton Parish well. The instrument has earned a distinguished reputation based on its...More
