Welcome to The Wellington Lodge No.1521 (English Constitution)
The Wellington Lodge is a Freemasons' (Masonic) Lodge, under the United Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons Of England, which meets in the City of Wellington, New Zealand.
It was chartered on 18 December, 1874 and entered as number 1521 on the register of the United Grand Lodge of England, in the District of North Island, New Zealand.
The Lodge meets at a purpose-built Lodge Room located in the Wellesley Boutique Hotel, 2-8 Maginnity St, in the heart of down-town Wellington. The Lodge meets on the third Wednesday of the month with the exception of January, February and March tyling at 6:30pm. The Installation meeting is held in June and tyles at 6.00pm.
The Wellington Lodge has been an integral part of Wellington life since 1874. It is a Lodge that is steeped in history, tradition and cultural heritage. With over 140 years of continuous history it is older than most establishments in this country.
A Lodge of Freemasons can be considered a "community" in its own right. What we share in common is an enjoyment of Freemasonry, a philanthropic, social and charitable organisation. It offers a unique opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds who share a high regard for ethics, which is practised independently of any religious or political convictions.
The ceremonies are a unique part of Freemasonry. They serve to remind of us our commitment to society as a whole, without being sanctimonious. They are just as relevant to today's society as when they were first being developed over two-hundred years ago. We have approximately 60 members, and our age range is between early 20s to late 80s. We come from all works of life. For many of our members Freemasonry adds an extra "dimension" to their leisure-time as it is a unique organisation.
We welcome visiting Masons and applications from anyone who wish to join the Lodge. We also welcome expressions of interest from those who wish to learn more about Freemasonry in general, or about The Wellington Lodge in particular.
