Clarence Lodge is steeped in history and celebrated its 125th anniversary in October 2018. It currently has 40 subscribing members who come from all walks of life and live mainly around Hartlepool and Teesside. Ages range from 19 – 80 and many recent members joined as a result of internet enquiries. 

What we do

The Lodge has strong links to the ancient traditions of freemasonry while enjoying a lively social side, which includes wives and partners.

Durham Provincial Grand Stewards L9833





Who are we?

The Durham Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge was consecrated in 2007, and is considered a Lodge of privilege as members are selected by the Provincial Grand Master from those Past Masters who have been granted advancement to the rank of Past Provincial Grand Steward. As a member of the Lodge, members will usually retain membership for 6 years and work closely with the Provincial Executive to deliver initiatives across the Province. This is a working Lodge and as such, does not confer any degrees however our meetings are held with the same decorum as all other Craft Lodges. Our meetings work as any other Craft Lodge but are centred around progress reports and updates relating to those Provincial initiatives as well as any other fulfilling work delivered by the Stewards on behalf of the Province.

What do we do

As outlined above, we work closely with the Provincial Executive to support the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham and assist in delivering their initiatives. We are at the heart of the Province and our duties are vast and very rewarding. We have 3 teams within the Lodge:

Director of Ceremonies Team – This team works with the Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies and accompany the representatives of the Provincial Grand Master on their official visits to Installation meetings throughout the whole Province. Team members are divided into four geographical regions of the Province with responsibility for Lodge Installations within each of those regions.

Learning and Development Team – This team work closely with the Provincial Learning and Development Officer to deliver Learning and Development initiatives across the Province and aims to educate, instruct, and assist all lodges to increase their Masonic knowledge. They are on hand to enrich Lodge meetings and ultimately to support Lodges in delivering their own Learning and Development needs.

Operations Team – This is the generalist team who lead on delivering the many and varied tasks required by Province. This team supports the Director of Ceremonies Team and the Learning and Development Teams enabling them to fulfil their roles but take primacy when assisting the Provincial Grand Secretary and the Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies to plan, co-ordinate and deliver the Provincial Annual General Meetings for both Craft and Chapter. During these meetings, you will see members from across the Lodge undertaking a wide range of duties from the collection of Lodge Furniture, setting up, meeting and greeting, car park management, registration, merchandising and close down. A vital role is to oversee the welfare of all those in attendance, providing care, support and attention should the need arise. Other roles within this team include communications, and equipment management, transport, and table planning.

Why join us?

As a member of a Lodge, each year members are selected to join the Provincial Stewards Lodge.



When we meet

The Lodge meets at Durham Masonic Hall, 36 Old Elvet, Durham. DH1 3HN and hold regular meetings on the Fourth Wednesday in April, First Thursday in July, and Fourth Tuesday in October.

Durham Lodge of Installed Masters L4441





Who are we?

The Lodge was formed in 1923 by a group of forward looking Installed Master’s who realised that, due to the influx of new members, there was little lodge time available for instruction and advancement in Masonic knowledge. The purpose of the lodge is to improve Masonic Knowledge and understanding by providing lectures on a vast range of Masonic subjects whilst maintaining the core values of Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.

What do we do

We have a membership of over 80 Installed Masters and we welcome new members to join us who have passed through the chair of their Lodge. We provide an opportunity for Masons from around the Province to meet new friends, to develop their Masonic knowledge by providing lectures on a variety of subjects and to enjoy each other’s company.

Why join us?

We have a cross section of members from Lodges around the Province who can each share their Masonic experiences and enlighten those who are seeking to develop their own Masonic knowledge and understanding of our fraternity. We encourage new Masters to join our Lodge but there is no pressure to take an office unless you are invited to do so. Charitable giving is always at the forefront of our minds, and we support many Masonic and Non-Masonic causes.

Hammurabi L9606





Who are we?

Hammurabi Lodge No9606 was formed in 1996 and was originally situated at Old Elvet,
Durham City, but moved to Ferryhill in February 2018. The lodge is named after King
Hammurabi who ruled the Babylonian Empire from 1792 – 1750 BCE. One reason that
Hammurabi created his code of laws was because he was concerned with keeping order in his
kingdom. The word Memores Majorum loosely means “time honoured principals”. The
members of the lodge are predominately retired police officers so the lodge is aptly named.

                               

What we do

Hammurabi Lodge is a group of Masons who like to meet with like-minded people and enjoy
other’s company. We are conscious of the local community and endeavour to support local
worthy causes when we can.

Why join us?

Originally membership was taken from police officers who were members of The
Northumbria, Durham and Teesside Constabulary’s. Over the years this has been relaxed and
we now take prospective members from the police and associated services, military, and
those who have been recommended by members.
