Great church community. I love the sermons, fellowshipping, and songs sang by their world renown choir. My daughter was Christened at the Brooklyn Tabernacle and we attend services regularly. I'm always moved by the message which sometimes brings me to tears. God is good all the time! Stop by and attend one of the three Sunday services (9am, 11am and... More

I love music, every kind of music however the this is not usually my first choice unless it's the holidays. The Brooklyn Tabernacle is just such a beautiful sound that you don't want to ever end. What amazing talent and poise. A very positive, uplifting experience that brings your heart and soul back into the Church and god.

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
