This Sunday December 2 begins Advent, the season of expectation and preparation for the birth of Christ. We welcome visitors all the time, but especially for the four Sundays of Advent. Service times are posted at the church.

Yes, if you are looking at the Governor's Palace, we are just left of Palace Green. You can enter the churchyard from the Palace Green gate or our Duke of Gloucester St. gate. Thank you very much for coming.

They offer gluten free communion. Our daughter was able to share in communion, something our own congregation does not allow her to do.

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

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.
