Easy to find, that glorious former theater. reverend David Wilkerson started this church and still his spirit
is to be felt, I enjoyed the mix of younger and older churchgoers.

Wonderful joy and excellent preaching on the Word of God. 10 am every Sunday. Thousands of people congregate here to improve their way of life, according to God'S Word.

It was a pleasure to attend an evening service at Times Square Church, founded by David Wilkerson, who led gang leader Nicky Cruz to Christ. The church looks nondescript from the outside, but step inside the doors and be overwhelmed by how gorgeous it is.

Sunday nights the church usually does Real Stories, Real People, which I believe is an evening of testimonies and worship. The night we visited, the church's Bible School staff and students were leading, so it was a little different. They sang some of their own music as well as songs the congregation would be familiar with. I personally hadn't heard Un Granos de Mostaza before (Spanish isn't our second language in Canada), but I LOVED it.

There was no pressure to put money in the offering plate or to buy product from the small bookstore in the lobby.

We felt very welcomed by the members here and several God-blessed us and shook our hands as we left. We would definitely go back if we were in NY.

I was happy to finally visit this church, which is known to have more nationalities in their congregation than perhaps any other church in the world. It is a former theater, and the original art is still visible in the auditorium, and it could easily host a Broadway show if needed.

Loved the worship and the fact that we could take Communion and that the offering wasn't a hard sell but even the offering song lyrics told that we can't really give anything to God. It might not be the trendiest church in NY at the moment, but a case study on how different races and nations can worship and live together in genuine fellowship.

Times Square Church is a one of a kind church located in a former movie house. Great music, welcoming place, mix of every kind of person. Highly Recommended.

We had a friend who was volunteering to work with the church in the summer. He gave us a great tour of this beautiful beacon of light in a spiritual needy area. Times Square itself is so "not family friendly" anymore. The "naked cowboy" at least has on white briefs that are hidden by his guitar. I am throughly embarrassed with the young girls in g-strings and pasties and painted breasts trotting around for photos. I do not recommend taking
children to Times Square unless it's to this beautiful church!

the holy cross church is totally renovated and spots a classical example of old church in modern architecture. the church is ideal for a prayer on the go and a place to sit for a minute in the heart of new york city. five stars

This church looks like an old theatre that has been converted to Church
The interior is absolutely stunning, well worth a look inside
I went to see the Gospel Choir here as I was staying in the area and couldn’t get to Harlem.
I don’t think the feel would be the same but I still really enjoyed it.
The place is huge with lots of seating on multi level
