What is a Lodge? Freemason Lodges are the basic organization in Freemasonry. They are collectively governed by Grand Lodges and or Provincial Grand Lodges for the area in which they reside. In our case, we are governed by Warwickshire Provincial Grand Lodge under the jurisdiction of the United Grand Lodge of England.
A Lodge Room is the room where the lodge(s) hold their lodge meetings, housed within a Masonic Temple – symbolically echoing King Solomon’s Temple. The ‘Lodge’ is where Freemasons practice their Freemasonry, learning moral and ethical values through allegory and symbolic plays, called ritual – defined as a set of actions performed mainly for their symbolic value.
Involved in the ministry
Our Freemasons Lodge meets near the centre of Birmingham on the 4th Friday in September, and 3rd Friday in October, January and March. We are meeting at Severn Street Masonic Hall. Consecrated in 1919.
We are a unique members’ organisation that has thrived for over 300 years. Having no political or religious affiliations, we comprise members of all ages, races, religions, cultures and backgrounds. We meet in our individual Lodges throughout the country where we have ceremonial traditions which encourage us both to be more tolerant and respectful and actively to fulfil our civic and charitable responsibilities; we also make time to eat, drink and meet together, and form lifelong friendships.
