Holy Family currently offers two formation programs for anyone interested in pursuing their spiritual journey in conversation. God Talk, an adult program and Messy Church, and Intergenerational program. 

God Talk

God Talk is a Bible study presented in a topical format. Our priest, Carmen Viola, brings a unique perspective as he has led tours of Israel multiple times.  All who attend will get a free copy of his book The Heart of Discipleship. Come every week or whenever you can. Each session stand on its own. 


God Talk meets on Monday nights from 7 pm - 9 pm in the Parish Hall of Holy Family Church.

Messy Church

Messy Church is fun, faith, family and food. Children and adults share the love of Jesus in a relaxed setting, while exploring a Bible story through crafts, games, worship and a meal. Messy Church is a movement that started in the Church of England in 2004, it has spread to 30 other countries and dozens of denominations. We are the only Episcopal church in New Jersey to be part of this global organization, along with a half million other worshippers. 


Messy Church upholds five values.

  • Hospitality ~ In sharing a meal, we welcome all to enjoy God's unconditional love.
  • Creativity ~ We reflect God's creativity in our hands- on crafts and games. 
  • Celebration ~ In our worship time, we reflect a God of joy.
  • All age ~ Adults and children engage in all activities together. 
  • Christ-centered ~ We are a church that helps people encounter Jesus as Lord and Savior. 


Messy Church meets several times a year, usually on a Saturday afternoon. Our next session is a Birthday party for Jesus on Saturday, December 11 at 3 pm.
