Senlac Lodge No. 5273

Freemasonry in Hastings and East Sussex
Senlac Lodge No.5273 is a Masonic Lodge under the jurisdiction of the United Grand Lodge of England and of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Sussex.

Senlac Lodge was consecrated in 1931. We meet on the second Thursday of the month, seven times a year, at The Masonic Hall at East Ascent in St Leonards-on-Sea. Our social mix is very diverse, with members from a wide selection of the community. Freemasons come from all walks of life, and are active in promoting a culture of integrity, charity and community responsibility.

Below is a short film outlining the fundamental values of what it means to be a Freemason, published by the United Grand Lodge of England.

Freemasonry - What's it all about?

Freemasonry means different things to different people. Some enjoy the opportunity to listen to and debate with others, whilst some members also find the social activities of great interest. A chance to study the history, philosophy and esoteric nature of the craft appeals to many, but most of all Freemasonry offers a pathway to develop in ways that personally interest you.

The Ethos

Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

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.
