We, In Chichester, Are Part Of A Much Larger Organisation Of Freemasons
We are part of the Sussex Province, which is based in Brighton and covers both east and west Sussex extending over a large geographic area.
Christopher Lintern Moore was installed as the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master and the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent for Sussex on Monday 13th June 2016 and is taking a lead on a number of important challenges such as membership and improvements to the buildings we use.
We are also part of the Grand Lodge Of England which is based in London at the impressive Freemasons Hall.
The United Grand Lodge of England currently has over two hundred thousand members meeting in 6,800 Lodges, which are grouped as follows:
Lodges meeting in London (an area generally within a 10-mile radius of Freemasons’ Hall), are administered by the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London, which is headed by the Metropolitan Grand Master.
Lodges meeting outside London, and within England, Wales, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, are grouped into 47 Provinces, whose boundaries often correspond to those of the old Counties, with each headed by a Provincial Grand Master.
