St Michael's Church

A Friendly and Welcoming Fellowship in the Heart of the Community

Flordon has a great sense of community spirit with events throughout the year to bring everyone together.

We have a small regular congregation, who work hard to make all visitors feel welcome. Those who come to our church usually comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere. In 2013 the nave was adapted for use as a Community Centre. The pews were removed and toilet and kitchen facilities were added.

We have three services each month:

  • There is no service on the first Sunday of the month - but we encourage people to go to one of the other services in the benefice:
    • 8am communion service at Mulbarton
    • 9am Morning Prayer service at Bracon Ash
    • 10am Cafe Church at Mulbarton Village Hall
  • On the second Sunday, we have what we call "Morning Light" - a lovely simple modern language service, with hymns, and refreshments following
  • On the third Sunday, we have Evensong, a traditional service using the Book of Common Prayer. This takes place at 6:30pm from April to October and at 3:30pm from November to March.
  • On the fourth Sunday in the month we have a spoken service of Holy Communion, using the Book of Common Prayer. This is at 8:30am.

We are especially pleased to see the fabulous building being used for so many innovative community activities, and are very pleased to be able to serve Flordon village by offering such a well-equipped and attractive facility, including plenteous parking, toilet, kitchen serving area and disabled access.

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.
