Welcome to Lodge of Harmony and Concord in the Province of Gloucestershire

Ever considered becoming a Freemason?

We hope that this information page will help show the breadth and diversity of our Masonic activities (mostly charitable, sometimes purely social, always enjoyable) and that this will encourage potential future members to come forward to find out more.

There are many ways of doing this, and the "information ; page in this website is a good place to start. The next step is then to make contact with one or more Masons ~ if you have a friend, colleague or neighbour who is a Mason, you should feel free to raise the subject with him. You will generally find that any Mason will be happy to talk with you, and to put you in touch with a Lodge Secretary. If you have no existing Masonic acquaintances, by all means contact us by e-mail, giving us a few details about yourself and why you are interested in joining.

Harmony and Concord Lodge meets seven times each year, on the second Tuesday of the month from October to May inclusive. Each month's meeting begins usually at about 6:30 p.m., when the Lodge is opened, minutes of the previous meeting are read, followed by the general business of the Lodge, concluding at around 7.45 p.m. This is followed by a Festive Board in the Dining Room, where we enjoy good food and interesting conversation amongst Masonic company. These meetings are open to Brethren of the Lodge, and their invited Masonic guests.

The Lodge calendar is further enhanced by our numerous social events, to which Brethren are encouraged to invite their partners, family and friends. Over the years, Harmony and Concord Lodge has enjoyed a wide variety of activities.

The spirit of Freemasonry is embodied in these three great principles:

Brotherly Love

Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow creatures.


Freemasons are taught to practice charity, and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.


Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives. Freemasons believe that these principles represent a way of achieving higher standards in life.


From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities.

Masonic charity is exercised at every level; individual Lodges make gifts and give aid to their own local communities and every Province also gives large sums of money to regional causes.

Nationally, our efforts are channeled through four main charity organisations, they are:

The Grand Charity
The Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys
The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution
The New Masonic Samaritan Fund
