Lodge of Brevity

Mondays | 7 Meetings a Year | Est. 2015 | No.9903

The Lodge of Brevity is a brand new lodge in the Province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight to appeal to those who have constraints on their time, but support the well-established and universal principles of brotherly love, relief and truth – the basic precepts of Masonry.


For the Modern Man

The Lodge of Brevity aims to appeal to those members of the public, and existing Freemasons, who lead busy lives and whose business, family and personal commitments leave a limited amount of time to devote to other social activities.   With this in mind we have streamlined the way Meetings are conducted so as to make the best use of the time available without losing any of the ethos of Freemasonry.  The Lodge carries out half of it's evenings at the Chandler's Ford Centre.
