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.

Please schedule 50 minutes to access this video at some point during Holy Week this year, as you slow down to be with Jesus, in all that He has done for us.
The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Holy Week service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the triumphant Palm Sunday entry through Jesus' burial.
This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God. The service concludes in darkness, with a final candle, representing Christ, carried out of the church, symbolizing the death of Jesus.
It is a simple service, with 6 candles, 8 readings, some music and some silence. A loud noise may also sound symbolizing the closing of Jesus' tomb. The worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the events of Holy Week, the impact of Christ's death and the expectation of the coming Resurrection.
