Friends of Flordon Church

Supporting the spiritual, historic and community purposes of Flordon Church

St Michael & All Angels church boasts Saxon origins, medieval additions and Victorian refurbishments. Through significant fund raising over the years the church has been transformed into a building to be accessible by all villagers whether for spiritual, historic or community purposes.   

In order for St Michael’s to continue to be of use to all villagers we feel it needs a Friends Group to support its current and future existence

There are several roles that may interest you such as helping with fundraising events or contributing financially on a regular basis.

If you have any ideas or experience in how this group could achieve its own goal of supporting St Michael & All Angels Church then we would be very pleased to hear from you.

Andrew explains:

"I recently saw an article about suicide rates in Veterans and whilst running I realised, as people were looking at me strangely carrying this cross, that for many Veterans the burden of their cross is too much too bear and that theirs, unlike mine, is invisible. As a former serviceman, this is a topic dear to my heart and I would therefore like to raise money to support them."

Lent Course 2019: The Prophetic Voice of India

This year's Lent Course runs on Wednesday evenings, from 13th March to 10th April.  We meet in the Lounge at Hanover at 7.30pm, and will finish by 9.15pm.

The United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel has produced a free booklet that we'll be using, in we which we listen to and reflect upon the prophetic voice from India. Each evening will consider a different theme.

The five-week study course looks at the radical nature of the gospel, with a special focus on the church in India.

"We might think the prophetic voice belongs to the Old Testament, but we want to show there are still many prophets to be found throughout the world church today.

"The prophets’ voices are challenging because they alert us to issues we might want to ignore - they call us to be like Jesus, who stood on the margins, comforting the oppressed and challenging those who are comfortable."

Study 1: Community – inspiring congregations to be dynamic in mission.
Study 2: Injustice – taking action to combat human trafficking.
Study 3: Gender – a skills training programme is giving women a new lease of life.
Study 4: Climate – schools are inspiring a new generation to care for the environment.
Study 5: Hope – giving hope to India’s marginalised Dalit and tribal peoples.
