everyone can go and attend, they sing most of the time. it could have been a very nice experience but they had 4 HUGE boxes installed in the small chapel. Without ear plugs you go deaf

I was lucky enough I'm told to see him preach and sing. He still has his voice and boy van he sing. Make time to day trip Memphis on a Sunday and perhaps you'll be as lucky as I to hear His good word through Rev Al.

We were lucky enough to meet Bishop Al Green and to hear him preach and sing was amazing. All of the music was fantastic and the church was full of charismatic people. I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed myself. We were made to feel very welcome.

Since we were staying in the local area we decided to don our Sunday best and visit the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church which was founded by Al Green and is currently presided over by the Reverend A. L. Green. It was a interest experience and the pews were equally full of locals and visitors, the gospel music was out of... More

Whilst I'm respectful of all religions this was a great place to come and listen to an inspiring service with the bonus of great music and a great choir. If more churches shared the same philosophy and had the same foot tapping music I'm sure there'd be more followers!

That Sunday I told to myself "It's gonna be a lovely day", in fact I was lucky and I met the charismatic reverend Al Green! It was an unforgettable experience! I shed tears of joy and emotion when he sang his gospel. Absolutely amazing. Stunning! Thank you Lord for this marvelous soul.

Not a "tourist attraction", but definitely worth the time spent there. Bishop Al Green is arguably the greatest soul singer and he has also been saving souls for many years. So, I came for the music and really felt the whole experience. His preaching is rooted in the real world and his personal faith and life stories, as related to... More

Went to Al Green's service this morning. It was a very promising start with Al himself presiding and some great gospel singing. One of the deacons welcomed the many tourist visitors and said she hoped we would find something good to take away from the service. Then there was more great singing, a member of the congregation stood up and... More
