I went for the sermon and partly to see what the place was all about given the reputation. The place is large and is you go for the sermon getting there at least 1-2 hours ahead of time would be good to secure a seat in the main building.

This was definitely worth the time and effort to get there. Be there an hour before the service, and you'll be able to walk right in. A line forms only to let the previous service empty. Made me think this is what Heaven will be like...every tribe and tongue worshipping together. Incredible choir and awesome pastor.

What a wonderful church and they really seem to care about the community. God lives in this building for sure as the overwhelming feeling of a higher power was very eminent--- It was a great Sunday morning and the church was jam packed !!!!!!!!!!!

This was by far the best part of my trip to NYC! When your away from home and need spiritual feeding, Brooklyn Tabernacle is the place to be. I'm a big church goer at home and there's nothing better than visiting another state and feeling the spirt with fellow spiritual brothers and sisters in Brooklyn. The choir was AMAZING!!! When...

This is the one church our family is able to agree on - and we are not "religious" - the music and singing is great. Will uplift you, even if you are not a "believer." Hey, you don't have to know much about baseball to love going to a game, right? So go to this beautiful church (restored theater) and... More

If you're into Jesus and you're EVER visiting the Big Apple, then there are 2 churches you MUST visit: Times Square Church and The Brooklyn Tabernacle. Lovely place, lovely time spent, beautiful ambiance/building/people. Need we say more??

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
