Welcome to Mowbray Lodge. We are a diverse Lodge with members from all walks of life and ages. The breadth of youth, experience and cultures makes for a vibrant, fulfilling, and happy experience. If you are interested in joining us, we will pleased to hear from you.We have a strong core of Senior Past Master’s and senior members who proactively support our newer members who are keen to learn. We pride ourselves on our ritual, delivered with skill, to make for an interesting and enjoyable evening.
We have been members of the Universities Scheme since 2008, opening up Freemasonry to Sunderland University, and we have had interest from students, staff, and alumni since then. Former students and staff have now become senior members within the Lodge, and we look forward to supporting them and watching them grow. Our membership does not however, only come from the Universities Scheme and we welcome all enquiries.
You will find us committed to ensuring that the membership can develop as Masons, in whatever way they choose, facilitated by strong friendships, pride in our reputation and our commitment to Freemasonry.
There is ample parking within a short walk from the Temple.
Wearside Masonic Temple is easy to access from the city centre and all major roads leading into it.
Wide doors, a level entrance once beyond the entrance stairway, and easy access to the lift to all floors.
Emergency exits from the upper floors have steps.
The Wearside Masonic Temple was constructed in 1932 and not ideally suited to those with mobility issues. That said, once the small stairway at the entrance is overcome, with the assistance of our brethren, the building has a lift to all floors and internal doorways will accommodate wheelchair access to the overwhelming majority of areas.
No internal ramps, wide doorways, rest chairs, a hearing loop is available and all dining tables are wheelchair accessible.
A small number of stairs with handrails to the entrance leading to a lift to all floors.
