May I wish everyone a warm welcome to our web site on behalf of the members of St. Cuthbert’s Lodge No 630.
For those who visit this site regularly for information on our activities and meetings I thank you for your support and hope that will continue, for those here for the first time, or who are just curious and would like to know more about freemasonry I hope I can give you a brief insight into our organisation.
The most common questions we hear as Freemasons are, “who are Freemasons” or “What do you do”.
Freemasons are drawn from a wide section of society, we are a multi-cultural organization attracting people from all walks of life, all religions and all political persuasions, members join for many reasons but all want to give something back to the wider society, though not strictly a charitable organisation, we raise millions of pounds each year for various charities and assist our local communities in many ways.
However each individual gets something back in return, a sense of giving, a wider circle of friends, also from our well structured ceremonies and lectures we gain knowledge.
Freemasonry teaches us “Self knowledge” through a progression of ceremonies, instilling in its members a moral and ethical approach to life, its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and forgiveness.
Freemasons are different and varied men who share a common interest, in our own St. Cuthbert’s Lodge we have members who are retired, company directors, office workers, teachers and laborer’s who all meet “on the level” as friends and equals, while the wider order has many famous men who are or were masons, for example, Alexander Fleming, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir “Billy” Butlin, and Peter Sellers to name but a few.
Should you be interested in becoming a Freemason or would like more information please feel free to contact us either through the web site or via our lodge, we will be more than happy to assist you further.
