A worldwide fraternity.
Freemasons are members of a worldwide fraternity with millions of members. They are able to visit other Lodges in their local area, and in just about every major town or city in the United Kingdom.
There are many Lodges in other countries spread across the globe. If you move perhaps for employment, family or retirement reasons, local Freemasons can provide you with instant, welcoming access to a large part of the local community. Merchants’ Lodge is a lodge with an outstanding history. It was founded in 1780, when Liverpool was a bustling sea-port, with sailing ships lining the docks, and ship owners and merchants occupying the grand houses of the city. We welcome men from all religious and ethnic backgrounds who share our values The lodge still meets in Liverpool and most of our members still have an association with the city- but some come from further afield. We have members from all walks of life including professionals, public servants, business men, tradesmen and ex-servicemen, all of whom bring their own individual talents, skills and knowledge to bear within our Lodge.
The lodge has evolved, embracing change and widening its scope. It offers many things including friendship and mutual support for members and their families. It provides the opportunity for members to improve their personal development, increase their self confidence and widen their social circle.
We as Freemasons contribute considerably to many charitable causes at both local and national level, and, even at international level when the need arises. Some of our members are also actively involved in supporting the community. For example by developing leadership skills within the Scout movement, administrative work in support of the RSPCA, and one of our members was the national chairman of the Autistic Society.
