What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is one of the world’s largest and oldest non-religious and non-political fraternal and charitable organisations. It is open to people from all walks of life, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic position in society.
The Masonic core principles
Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: it seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things.
Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows.
From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help those in distress without detriment to their dependents, and to give their support to outside charities.
Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavour to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.
Stanford Lodge is not just a Saturday Lodge, we are a family, we are friends and brotherly love is all about looking after each other and supporting each other. It is about having fun, we have our renowned ‘jolly boys’ where once a year we go away to a place of interest we learn and we bond. We have fantastic social events from our Masters golf day. BBQ on the beach, curry night and most importantly our Ladies Night where we celebrate our partners and all are welcome. we are young, mature and above all we have a great time. we are there for each other.
Join us and be part of a bigger, loving and fun family.
Are you passionate about supporting people? do you want to embrace the spirit of selflessness, of giving, of helping?
Then freemasonry is for you, during Covid 19 Stanford Lodge supported Worthing’s Mind matters, mental health is something we as a odge are passionate about.
During our Ladies Night, we support the charity of the current Master of the Lodge.
Freemasonry is the second largest charity giver in the UK and this solely funded from Masons – in Sussex we support the Teddies for Loving Care, The Masonic Trout and Salmon Fishing Charity, bringing an interactive and countryside experience to people with special needs and many many more.
Join us to find out how you can make a difference to the community and Stanford Lodge.
Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.
Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life.
This makes all Freemasons want to live a better and more fulfilling life. We always strive to make a daily advancement in Masonic knowledge.
Being a Freemason gives a great opportunity to build personal confidence and even develop professionally as every Mason has as much a chance as they wish to practice skills such as public speaking, researching information, learning ritual and development in many other areas of life.
‘’ Freemasonry has given me so much confidence. The guys at Stanford Lodge are encouraging and very Supportive. I now feel so much better equipped to deal with whatever work or life throws at me! I now give after-dinner toasts and speeches, something I really never thought I would be able to do. Stanford Lodge, a great group of like-minded people who want everyone to succeed’’ Stanford Lodge Member.
Join us to build your own destiny.
