Who We Are
Located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, Bridge Street African Methodist Episcopal Church is the oldest continuing Black congregation in Brooklyn/Long Island. Founded in 1766 and incorporated in 1818, the Church has been in the forefront of providing programs to meet the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and environmental needs of people in the church and community. The music ministry is an extension of that work. Through its music ministry, Bridge Street AME Church has been instrumental in providing music programs to develop and enrich the spiritual lives of its people.
