This looks like an unusual but interesting building. I have seen various styles before but not all in the one place. It looks simple as Naturedigital said and yet ornate. It seems to be a mix of Cathedral, Church and Town hall. This is a good set of pictures to demonstrate the interior.

Such a beautiful church -- I was lucky to go to my cousin's wedding there about 40 years ago -- so beautiful a setting.

It is a lovely old church and I especially like that Baptismal font and the Paschal candle. I would love to attend a service there!

We were in attendance in this church around September while we were at a family reunion. We all sat up in the balcony. It's a beautiful church. I love coming to your blog as I love Williamsburg.
Be a sweetie,

Churches old or new, have always fasinated me. When I visit a place, if it is possible I always visit a church or two.
I like very much the big lamp in your church.
