Freemasonry in Kidderminster has a longstanding tradition. The Lodge of Hope and Charity No.377 was consecrated in 1824 under charter from The United Grand Lodge of England and is the 3rd oldest Masonic Lodge in the Worcestershire province.

The Lodge of Hope and Charity, originally numbered 791, began its unbroken history in 1824, having two changes of number and becoming 377 in 1863.

Today, our Lodge Members come from varied backgrounds, including engineers, salesmen, accountants, conference organisers, driving instructors, police officers and teachers to name but a few professions.

We meet eight times each year, on the First Tuesday of the month from October to May inclusive. The Ceremony of Installation takes place at our February meeting.

Our regular meetings are held at:

The Kidderminster Masonic Centre (The Kidderminster Cricket Club Ground)
Chester Road North (vehicle access at end of Offmore Lane view map)
Worcestershire DY10 1TL

Meetings are open to the members of the Lodge, their invited Masonic guests and other Masonic visitors. If you are a Freemason and would like to visit us on any occasion, please contact the Secretary for details, using the “Contact Us” page.

Every regular meeting is followed by a formal dinner, known as the ‘Festive Board’, where members of the Lodge, their guests and visitors enjoy good food, quality wine and stimulating camaraderie.
