I attended Full Gospel Tabernacle years ago, my mom was a friend to Al Green's personal overseer..He preached great sermons, and always song which drew a lot of people. He is still Pastor there and I know he is still putting out a great service.

Rev Al Green is the pastor of the church and preaches almost every Sunday. When he is unavailable other preachers fill in. Services are Sunday 11:30 - 1:30

I don't know. You will need to call the church directly.

It’s a regular church not a tourist attraction, although tourists do attend. No tickets required. Customary collection plate is there to make an offering during the service.
