We are a small, friendly and welcoming country lodge that is keen to meet all prospective members. Each year we present a citizenship award to a pupil from Freshwater State School. This tradition came about in 1998 to mark the Lodge’s 50th anniversary.
Freshwater Lodge makes an effort to involve their families, friends and the wider community in a number of social and philanthropic activities. Should you wish to find out more please contact the Lodge Secretary.
Freshwater Lodge was consecrated on Saturday 26th March 1949. Discussions for the formation of the Freshwater Lodge had commenced in 1948, a couple of years after the end of WWII when men returning from the War were now settling into family life and new careers.
Meetings were held at the Freshwater Methodist Church until it was decided to purchase land for a Temple building. Construction of the Temple commenced in November 1956 with voluntary labour from the members. The construction, however, was completed by a builder who was a member of the Lodge. The Freshwater Masonic Temple was dedicated on 14 March 1959.
Our regular meetings are on the 3rd Friday of the month at 7:30pm. We also have an annual meeting where the new Master and officers are invested for the following 12 months. This is held on the 2nd Saturday in July.
Freemasons are a diverse group of men from all walks of life, from many religions and many backgrounds. Becoming a Freemason is a commitment to develop your own potential, to values that see all humankind as equal, and to helping others in our community.
