What the Freemasons are about

Birnbeck Lodge No 7160 is situated in the seaside town of Weston-s-Mare. It prides itself on being a very friendly and traditional lodge but with a very forward thinking attitude. The lodge has an excellent reputation for some of the best ritual in the province and is extremely proud of its charitable fund raising, by which it helps to support National ventures as well as many local groups. The lodge has over 60 members who are drawn from all backgrounds and occupations, such as the Armed Forces, emergency services, self employed, financial sectors and many others. We feel that this gives a good balance of members with different interests and knowledge, this makes our gatherings very diverse and interesting.
As well as being friendly, it is a very sociable lodge and holds several social events during the year which are organised by either the committee or individuals of the lodge, and vary in type and frequency. An important feature is that all our social events are open to family and friends including those that are not Masons.

What are the Freemasons about?

Freemasonry is a basic philosophy, which teaches a system of morality and ethics through the symbolism of the Ancient Building Trade. It is not a religion and embraces members of all Races, Ethnicities, Sexual Persuasions and Religions. It teaches the principles of personal decency and responsibility and inspires charity and goodwill. We meet nine times a year from September to May on the third Wednesday of each month. During the months from May to September we do not meet formally but may have social or charity events.
