Welcome to Teme Lodge No 4267
We have a membership of just under 40, and have been serving the community of Knighton and Presteigne since the Lodge was consecrated on Empire Day, the 24th May 1921, in the Board room at Offa's Lodge in Knighton. Freemasonry provides a structure for members to come together under the common goals of integrity, friendship, respect and charity, enabling people to make friendships, develope themselves and make valauable contributions to charitable causes as members of their community.
In becoming a Mason members have the opportunity to learn the more important truths of morality, their relationship with a Supreme Being and their fellow men, and find the acceptance of others in an atmosphere of mutual support and tolerance.
Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Service
Our membership comes from across Knighton, Presteigne and the surrounding villages and beyond. We are part of one of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, an inclusive and hospitable society, who welcome members from all races, creeds and backgrounds. While we are located in Wales, Teme Lodge in Knighton is part of the Shropshire Province. However, we are dedicated to working with local communities on both sides of the border.
We have a number of events, both regular and social, in the pipeline. Above all the goal is to strengthen friendships and help members be valued as integral to the Lodge and to Freemasonry in general and raise funds for charitable giving, locally and nationally. We will post more upcoming events as they are planned.
Where we're based
You can find us at Whitton Community Hall, in the Old School, Whitton, Knighton, LD7 1NP. We meet on the third Tuesday in the month, from September to April and the fourth Tuesday in October.
Becoming a Freemason means joining more than 200,000 members across England and Wales, as well as many districts overseas. Membership is open to any man over the age of 18 irrespective of their race or religion, while women are invited to join our female-only Grand Lodges, The Order of Women Freemasons and the Honourable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons. Teme Lodge meets in Whitton, Knighton, and welcomes applicants and new members from all walks of life, it is an inclusive Lodge and has never appealed or attracted any particular sector of the community, it's diversity is the strength of the Lodge and is representative of the community it serves.
Rather than working on buildings like the masons of old, today's Freemasons focus on building themselves as people of integrity, and membership provides the structure to help achieve that goal.
One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions and provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.
With a membership of more than 200,000 people drawn from communities across the UK, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.
Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry. The organisation provides a support structure that helps members make positive contributions, both in charitable giving and volunteer work to and for our communities and worthwhile causes.
