John Carpenter Lodge is a friendly and highly enjoyable lodge and we warmly welcome visitors, joining members and new freemasons alike. We are very fortunate not only to have a thriving and active membership of all ages and from all walks of life but also routinely to welcome many visitors who never leave us without wanting to return.
John Carpenter Lodge was formed for ‘Old Citizens’ – old boys of the City of London School. Although we still have very close links with both the school and its alumni network, being an Old Citizen is not a requirement for membership and our members are drawn from a variety of business and social backgrounds. We welcome new members with or without a connection to the school and from any background.
We meet four times a year at Mark Masons Hall in London’s St. James’s Street opposite St. James’s Palace.
If you are interested in visiting or joining us, we look forward to hearing from you.
Freemasonry is a male-only society, focused on three core principles: respect, truth and charity. Freemasonry is an enjoyable pastime for men to meet, make friends and acquaintances of varied interests and backgrounds and raise money for deserving causes.
Ask! Becoming a Freemason is not at all difficult, but it does require that its members believe in a Supreme Being. It is open to men (over 21) of all faiths and creeds. Freemasonry does not discriminate on the grounds of ethnicity, disability, age, politics, religion or sexual orientation.
John Carpenter Lodge meets at Mark Masons Hall, 86 St. James’s Street, London SW1A 1PL at 4pm on the first Friday in October and the second Friday in December, January and May (Installation).
