Easy Hiking around Flam

My friend and I will be travelling Norway-Sweden-Denmark in mid-August for 8 days, and are planning to take Norway-in-a-Nutshell Oslo-Bergen one-way tour, but staying overnight in Flåm before taking the fjord boat to Gunvangen & train to Bergen the next day. We're hoping to do easy-level hiking in Flåm. How about the route from Flåm pier 1 to the Old Flåm Church (aka Flåm kirke)? Is the route very steep though? Please advise.

There is no shortage of hiking options, perhaps choose once there and you see the landscape (and can ask locals about details).

To the church is easy and even road on the valley floor

Walking to the church is along a paved road, it is more or less flat - maybe slighly uphill.
