The Brooklyn Tabernacle is rich with history and the restoration and its story is by God's hand. The outside of the building is nice but when you walk into the inside it's beautiful and the sanctuary is stunning. I went on the Tuesday Prayer Night....More

This was a special place to spend Christmas Eve. Wonderful singing and message. The early 9am service was crowded, but not so crowded we couldn't get a seat. Best to get there early.

Great service and singing by the Choir! The service last about 2 hours and the tabernacle fills up. If you are in a group arrive early if you choose to sit in close proximity to each other.
