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

I had always wanted to go here to hear the music. It was on my list as an "attraction" to check off. As fate would have it, my work put me in a hotel within walking distance. My two children and I set off on freezing cold walk on a Sunday morning with no preconceived notions. As we got closer,... More

I have enjoyed the Brooklyn tabernacle choir's music for years, but to hear them in person was outstanding. The sound in that church is so full and beautiful. The choir sang four songsand each was amazing. The church itself is gorgeous. For such a large church, the people are very friendly and welcoming of visitors. A great place to worship!

We came to Brooklyn just to visit this place in person. What a service--spirit filled singing and the message from Pastor Tim was wonderful. A great experience. The ones who live here are lucky to have a place like this to worship.

I have been a member of this church for over 8 years. I now live in NC, but can't seem to stay away from Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Tabernacle. The members are kind, courteous and God fearing. The music is all powerful and ministers to my soul. I could not visit Brooklyn and not stop for a service at the... More
