About Us

How We Got Our Start

Our Lodge was founded in Worthing centre in 1949 at the Masonic Centre in Marine Place Worthing . The name ORDINGES was taken from the original 1086 name for the area and our cornicopia horn of plenty logo is in reference to the fact that the area was mainly orchards . 

We now meet at the Charmandean near Lyons Farm and have 6 formal meetings each year and generally get together most Tuesday evenings.


Who are we ?

We are a friendly bunch! Guys from all age groups and all walks of life living in and around Worthing.

We meet up regularly for a drink and a chat, raise a bit for charity while we do it and are always open to welcoming new friends. Why not get in touch ?


What's it all about ?

Freemasonry is about friendship and brotherhood

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry. The following information is intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practised under the United Grand Lodge of England, which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and in many places overseas.

Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas – a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge – which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.

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.

Are you thinking of becoming a Freemason?

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.
