Flam/Aurland to Borgund Stave Church WITHOUT a car?

I'm visiting Aurland this summer, but don't plan to rent a car. Is it possible to get to the Borgund Stave Church by public transport and back within one day? I see a bus route that departs Flam/Aurland around 2:18pm, but can't figure out if there's a return bus from Borgund later in the afternoon that would allow enough time to see the church. It's a 40 minute drive away so I think a taxi would be cost prohibitive.

Thank you JZ! This is exactly the kind of info I was hoping to receive. : )

This may be pressing my luck here, but do you happen to know the bus schedule from Flam/Aurland to Sogndal to catch the Glacier Bus (which I believe leaves at 8:45am)? And then the return bus from Sogndal to Flam/Aurland after the Glacier Bus drops off around 18:35pm? Or is there a boat that would be easier/quicker?
