We are a Taylor’s working Lodge who meet four times a year at the Civil Service Club, Great Scotland Yard, in Central London, where we also dine after meetings.
Our Lodge was consecrated on the 19th December 1923 following the issue of our Warrant on the 9th October 1923. We of course are now only a few years from our Centenary, a landmark occasion for which we are already planning.
Our original members donated towards the building of Freemasons Hall making us a Hall Stone Lodge.
We are a friendly Lodge made up of members from a variety of business and social backgrounds. We welcome with open arms visitors and joining members from other Lodges to our meetings and it goes without saying if you are not currently a member of our wonderful institution you are most welcome to read on through our website and feel free to contact our Secretary (see contact section) if you have an interest in joining Freemasonry and our Lodge in particular.
Our Lodge also has a regular Lodge of Instruction (LOI) and meet on the first and third Wednesday of the months of September to May at Mark Mason’s Hall, situated at 86 St James’s Street, Central London.
We are also affiliated to Elia Chapter 4590 who meet at Southgate Masonic Centre, in North London three times a year, again visitors or those Master Masons thinking of joining the Royal Arch will of course be most welcome, again contact our Secretary for further information.
Freemasonry is about sharing a common desire for charitable support and following a strict moral code based on the three core principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth and thus improving oneself and others. Membership of our fraternity is open to men of any race, religion, political belief or status.
One of the most common misconceptions about Freemasonry, and there are of course many of them, is that you must be invited to join. In fact, there is absolutely no reason why you should not ask to join, please feel free to contact us if you find the contents of our website of interest.
Elia lodge regular meetings are held four times a year, during the late afternoon, on the second Monday in March (Installation), the first Wednesday in May, the third Tuesday in September and the second Monday in November. All meetings are followed by a festive board at the same location, thereby combining a ceremony in a Masonic Temple followed by convivial dining thereafter.
