Freemasonry in London is vibrant and is enjoyed by a wide variety of men living both inside and outside London.
The Gallery Lodge has members attending the Regular Meetings from places such as the Midlands, Sussex, Surrey, Middlesex, Leicestershire and of course London. Meetings are held on a Saturday and start at 3pm. The Meetings take a few hours and the dinner after the meeting would normally finish around 9.15pm.
For those considering becoming a Freemason with The Gallery Lodge (or any other Lodge), there are a few main requirements of you. They are :
Freemasonry is multi faith which means you can be of any faith. Or maybe you have not decided but you have a belief in a God. It does not mean regular attendance at a place of worship. Of course Atheists and Agnostics would not find it compatible with their view of life.
No criminal record. Parking tickets are not counted. But if you have a situation of which you are uncertain just ask.
There are some accepted exceptions to this rule.
Membership does have a cost in terms of fees, in a similar way to other clubs.
The Gallery Lodge is categorized as a “dining lodge” meaning that we have dinner after every meeting. The cost of the dinners forms part of the Annual Membership Fees. The costs will be made clear to all those interested in joining The Gallery Lodge.
Family matters take precedence over Freemasonry. It is important that your family is supportive of your joining and on-going membership and understands and accepts it.
