The Lodge of Promise is a Lodge in the Metropolitan Grand Lodge and warranted by The United Grand Lodge of England.
It has the benefit of holding all its meetings in the magnificent Freemasons’ Hall building in Great Queen Street, London – the Headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England.
Formed in 1946, the Lodge attracts members from all the Counties surrounding London and many from much further afield such as Wales and even France.
Despite this there is a good turnout at each meeting, normally over 75% of the membership. This is testament to the entertaining style of the Lodge meetings and Festive Boards (meals) that follow each meeting.
It is a fast-growing Lodge with 45 subscribing members. Our current age range is from men in their twenties to our oldest member who is in his seventies, and yes, he still attends all of our meetings.
Current members include surveyors, accountants, people working in the care sector, the health service, engineers and professionals – and both serving and retired police officers and members of the armed forces – a truly eclectic mix. In fact, people from all backgrounds would find they have much in common with us.
Without exception every member of the Lodge of Promise has a good sense of humour. The ethos of the Lodge is that every member brings a different gift; not all are great ritualists, organisers or Secretary or Treasurer material. However, every member is offered the opportunity to become better at what they enjoy doing and indeed those things that they find a challenge. No member is looked down on; all are encouraged to succeed.
We have all bought in to the Idea that we must always strive for continuous improvement but, must still see it all as enjoyable and fun to be part of – after all, we all volunteer to be members.
Our success, as a Lodge, is we work to ensure that every member leaves a meeting and the following Festive Board with a smile on their face.
Freemasonry is about sharing a common desire for charitable support and following a high moral code. It is focused on following the three core principles and improving oneself and others. Our society is open to men of any race, religion, political belief and status.
One of the most common misconceptions about Freemasonry – and there are many of them – is that you have to be invited to join. There is absolutely no reason why you should not ask to join – in fact that is now very acceptable.
