I visited on Easter Sunday at the 12 pm service and saw a powerful church production of the Crucifixion and Resurrection. It was a diverse assembly of people of all ages and nationalities. The choral selections are uplifting. The Tabernacle is close to several trains and so it is easy to get to. But arrive before the service starts as... More

we saw, and heard a bit of it's history, the Tabernacle when we took our Tenement Museum Tour...will try to include the inside tour in our next visit. lots of history and it's obvious that much love and care has gone into making sure it is preserved and gets to stay in the neighborhood!

They run 3 services on Sunday at 9, 12 and 3pm due to the size of the congregation. In attended the 12pm as I was staying in Brooklyn nearby. I arrived about 1130 and got a seat. Too much later and you may be struggling. The choir and audience sings for the first 1/2 hour and easy to sing along... More

we went to the Brooklyn tabernacle to hear a gospel choir as we had read varying reviews of other more frequented places. It was worth the trip to Brooklyn. The people were welcoming, the choir was great and the sermon was relevant and grounded in real life and I'm not religious. I got a lot out of it, although it... More

Brooklyn Tabernacle is an amazing church as has transformed my life in more ways than one. Tuesday night service is such a blessing as we pray for others around the world and right at home, it makes you more self-less which is always a humbling thing. Sunday service starts with worship, songs by the chior, and an amazing sermon. I... More

I visited twice, each time on a Sunday at 9 am with out-of-town guests. The atmosphere is absolutely electric and the singing absolutely spectacular!! Situated in a converted theatre, the space is magnificent, and jam packed with thousands of church-goers (& tourists!) Each time we went, the entire choir was up on the stage, singing with such amazing energy and... More
