Beautiful church, great concerts here when you can catch them. A lot of history in this place. A tour of the graveyard completed our time there. Very interesting!

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.

Yes the Bruton Parish Shop and Heritage Center are just a block and a half west of the church. Open daily with fun items and Christmas merchandise is now coming in. Thank you for your visit and recommendation.

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

Bruton Parish has so much history. Sit in George Washington's pew. The greeters are very knowledgeable. If you are there on a Sunday, don't miss the choral service.

Yes, we are open daily. The Bruton Guides are happy to give you a bit of history. Great for kids. Sunday services are at 7:30, 9:15 and 11:15 in the morning and 5:30 in the evening. All are welcome. Thank you!

I just had to see the beautiful pipe organ, only to find out that they are taking this one and replacing it with another small number of pipes. I was indeed happy to hear that the existing organ is going to a good home.

Yes and yes. We'll have a new, American-built organ about 18 months from now. Please come back and hear it! Thank you for your review.

We were fortunate to be able to attend the Sunday service here during our stay. A meaningful experience. NB: no restrooms on site. This congregation is used to tourists, and they were very welcoming.
