Great place visit if you want to hear a word from the Lord. The choir is amazing but the Lord also speaks. If visiting, plan to stay until 11:00AM for the 9:00AM service and until 2:00pm for the 12:00pm service.

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
