We were unlucky, we hadn't checked the website and it turned out the Tabernacle Choir was abroad singing. The replacements were pretty good too though and we enjoyed it. I was impressed by how close and welcoming the community was. Next time I'm in NYC I will try to visit this place again :)

Another blessed service at Brooklyn Tabernacle. The sermon was excellent and challenged those attending to live a godly life. One that honors God in spite of the pressures of the culture wanting to change God's plan for human existence.

Blown away by the excitement and fun of this church experience. The pastor had is eating out of his hands. He started with shake someone's hand in front of you, by the end of the sermon we are hugging each other and just about crying. Everyone should experience this place at least once. If not to see an old New... More

I always wanted to visit the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church because their music is very inspiring. We decided to attend Christmas service, the first one of the day. We took the subway 2 and get off Borough Hall and just walked to the church. Make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the service because the closer to the... More

Come one, come all! Truly a very spiritual experience from the ushers to the choir to the preacher. I come from a " Sister Church" CHRIST TABERNACLE" where service is always great, however, have to hand it to my fellow brothers & sisters in Christ that made me feel so welcomed and filled with the word. A must TO DO!

If you've heard of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir praising in their music you will not be disappointed taking time on a Sunday morning/early afternoon service to worship with them. It is very heart lifting and emotional. Despite the large size of the congregation and many visitors it is a very welcoming experience. The choir is like no other belting their... More

If you are a fan of gospel music, then try to squeeze in a visit to the Brooklyn Tabernacle. The church is really well organised and staff to accommodate the large congregation of both locals and tourists. They have several services and they can become quite full but I've been twice and got a seat no problem both times. Look... More

this is a "church" with 3 services on Sunday. it's a huge old theater, nicely renovated. the music is spectacular! everyone so nice and welcoming. the 9am service is easy to get into. the 11a and 1p you will stand in line outside waiting for the previous service to empty out.

Mere words are not adequate to describe the wonder and awe of this place. God is at work among these dear people and it can literally be felt. My husband and I were moved to tears when the congregation sang. It was so moving; the Holy Spirit is surely in this place. Thank you for blessing us in this way.

Although I am not a member of the church, I visit often. Each and every time I visit the church for prayer service or Sunday service, I am greeted with a warm embrace and respect by members. Sermons are appropriately timed and to the point. The ministers find a way to help all understand the message. They speak to you... More
