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

How Great is our God and how great is the Brooklyn Tabernacle choir as they praise our Lord Jesus. They certainly know how to make a joyful noise. The congregation is extremely friendly and the restrooms were spotless.

I was in NYC for three weeks visiting and friend and wanted to have the "gospel" experience. My friend turned out to be hard to tie down and I was doing a lot of NYC by myself which was Wonderful but also I didn't know what I was doing. I did some googling one morning as I woke up early... More

Who has 2 thumbs, and writes a review of going to church? This guy! Let's be perfectly honest here: there is a growing dissatisfaction with all things religious, particularly as folks become more aware of some of the really really stupid stuff that people do in the name of religion. But I'll promise you that even with that level of... More
