Welcome to Masonic Lodge Eltham
Freemasons Lodge Eltham
The Masonic Lodge Eltham was consecrated in 1911 by the Grand Lodge of NSW and the ACT. The idea of forming a Masonic Lodge in Eltham must have happened in the first half of the previous year, because by the 20th of July in 1910 a petition to form as new Lodge was drawn up. It was signed by 17 interested local Masons, recommended by Richmond River Lodge No. 77, countersigned and approved by Lodge Bangalow No. 250 and forwarded to the Most Worshipful Master of the Grand Lodge of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory for approval.
That was over 100 years ago and the Masonic community surrounding Eltham is still as strong as ever. Masons come to meet from surrounding towns like Lismore, Bangalow, Dunoon and even Byron Bay to attend regular meetings and to enjoy the hearty welcome that is synonymous with Freemasonry and it’s brethren. Many of us as kids wondered what dad was doing when he would dress up at night and take his small bag of to the lodge and many of us have carried on that tradition. If this is something that you would like to talk about and find out more then contact Lodge Eltham and we would be only too happy to have you come along.
Lodge Eltham Shares this Mission Statement.
The Mission Statement of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory is: “To be recognised as an organisation of excellence for worthy men, regardless of race, creed or political persuasion – promoting tolerance, fellowship, personal development and community development.”
Are you interested in joining Freemasonry? Was your father a freemason or even grand father, would you llike to carry on the tradition. We have a saying and that is “to be one ask one” thats how we all entered into freemasonry. There is more information about freemasonry in this site.
Lodge Eltham meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Members of the lodge often visit lodges throughout Northern NSW and visiting is a part of Freemasonry.
Not A Religion
Some people have the idea that Freemasonry is a religion. We are not a religion and we are open to people from all religions and race. Freemasonry is about brotherhood.
