Progressive Science Lodge is a traditional Freemasons’ Lodge in the Province of Somerset. The Lodge is one of four Craft Lodges located in Yeovil Somerset and was founded in 1928 and is proud of its long history and is known as a warm and friendly Lodge.
Whilst always striving to maintain the values and standards of Freemasonry the Lodge also is adapting to the changing world to ensure the Lodge remains vibrant and sustainable and so that all of its members, young and older, enjoy the privileges of being a Freemason.
Membership comprises individuals from all backgrounds and In addition to the regular meetings and Festive Board the Lodge has social and informal gatherings where we invite and encourage family and friends to join us.
The Lodge meets regularly on the first Tuesday of the month in October, November, December, February, March, April and May. The October meeting is the annual installation of the new Worshipful Master for the ensuing year. Our regular meetings start at 6:30pm except for the Installation meeting at 5:15pm and the December meeting at 6.00pm.
The Festive Board follows each of the monthly meetings and all members are encouraged to attend if possible, although this is not compulsory. However, this is always a warm and happy occasion in our lodge where you will meet new friends.
In addition, we have regular Lodge of Instruction meetings on the last Tuesday of each month during the masonic year. Lodge members are encouraged to attend these informal meetings when possible, to learn more about Freemasonry in general and to learn and practice ritual in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The last Tuesday is always a rehearsal for all of the appointed officers of the lodge who are conducting the business at the next regular meeting.
We give a warm welcome to new members and encourage them to take an active part in the Lodge, as this helps them to make new friends and gain a better understanding of Freemasonry. We offer encouragement and support for all members to help them achieve their full potential. In doing so we are flexible in dealing with each individual, recognizing that there should be no hard and fast rule for everyone. However, every brother is afforded the opportunity to become better at what they enjoy doing and indeed those things that they find a challenge.
An ideal candidate would be someone looking for comradeship within an established framework, who wants to enjoy and contribute to Lodge activities and is prepared to commit to the regular meetings and can afford the costs of membership, including charitable donations.
We would encourage any man over 21, with ‘strict morals and upright intensions’ with a belief in a
Supreme Being, and the support of their family to join us. We also welcome any existing Freemason looking to join a new Lodge. As with all Freemasonry, neither religion nor politics are discussed at meetings.
