I visited Brooklyn Tabernacle and it was an awesome experience. I am not Christian, however, I did go to Catholic school my whole life, so I am very exposed to the religion. I visited this church for my God Daughters christening. This church is so multi cultural, multi racial, multi national....it was inspiring. I felt like it was the most... More

WOW! If you have never bee to the Brooklyn Tabernacle, you need to put this on your "bucket list." This is no doubt the friendliest, most accommodating group of people you will ever encounter. The music is outstanding and the message from the Pastor is simple, succinct and spirit filled!

Coming from a very traditional Catholic country, where masses are old-fashioned, spleenful and severe, it was nice to experience a festive service where things were led like a celebration, and people seemed to be happy about their beliefs rather than fearful. The choir only had about 15 people, I was expecting more but it was good nonetheless.

Exactly as a french tourist can imagine :-) First, it is incredible how professional it is ; 7 cameras filming the office (should I say the show ?), 200 chorists, around 10 musicians... The result has really top professional quality, honestly, much better than many concerts I saw !!! Now up to you to say if you like or not... More

Excellent place to come and worship. You will get the word ministered to you from the pastors and through music.

One of the most amazing experiences in NYC. The coral is great! It is not a turistic place so you can feel the real community's energy and vibration! You can not miss it!

I have listened to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir on CD's and videos for a long time! What a great experience to visit at Christmas and hear the fantastic choir perform a Christmas Musical. The greeters really were just that! As you walked in the door there was a big smile and a greeting. I can't wait to return for another... More

As with any church, it's what you seek and what you need that gages the experience. If you love wonderful gospel music and praise music you are in for a treat. Just be ready to stay for a few hours because this isn't a Baptist or Methodist 50 minute in and out cookie cutter service with at 15 min sermon... More
