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.

Quiet Time with God

Some of us thrive on stillness and silence in solitude;   for others the companionable quiet of a meditation group may be more helpful.  This newly formed group is an opportunity to explore together, in quietness and simplicity, how we can experience and respond to God as a part of our spiritual journey.

We will be meeting fortnightly from Wednesday 6 November at 7.30 pm for 45 minutes at Hethel Church.

During this time we will have an opening prayer, followed by a short Bible reading.  There will then be a period of approximately 20 minutes Quiet Time with God, which may take the form of silent prayer, meditation or simply sitting in quiet reflection in God’s presence.

At the end of this time, there will be an opportunity to share any thoughts, feelings or insights and a short prayer, as well as refreshment. (However if you wish to leave before that’s perfectly fine).

Dates in the autumn term 2019:

Wednesdays:  6, 20 November; 4, 18 December

Book Exchange Flordon

It has been some years since the Parish Council kindly bought the phone box for £1, I would say that was a pound well spent. There is always plenty of books to choose from and the stock is changing regularly. Alasdair and I have given the book exchange a coat of paint and tidied the area around the box and it is lovely to see the bench back by the book exchange. We were delighted to see a family eating their packed lunch there at the weekend and browsing through a couple of books. Thank you all for your continued support in bringing books for us all to read, its wonderful.
