Many people believe the misconception that Freemasonry is a "secret society" hiding in the shadows. Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, Freemasonry is a surprisingly open organisation and we at Wearside Masonic Temple are embracing that with this new website.
The website has been created for two especial reasons. Firstly, to communicate to the people of Sunderland and beyond news and information of events that are happening within the building, and to provide details of the various rooms that are available to hire...yes, you don't have to be a Freemason or even know a Freemason to use our magnificent venue. If you are looking for a function room for your wedding reception, christening, birthday, business conference or seminar, we hope that you will consider Wearside Masonic Temple as a highly competitive alternative to other venues in Sunderland.
Secondly, the website aims to communicate to Freemasons some information on the various Lodges and Orders that meet in our building and also give prospective members some general information on what Freemasonry is all about.
So please feel free to browse our website and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
