|As Provincial Grand Master, let me welcome you to the official site of the Oxfordshire Provincial Grand Lodge. You
will be able to find information relating to our Lodges and their meetings, the charities we support and upcoming events, as
well as other items of interest.|
|Freemasonry has been practised in Oxfordshire for over 200 years, from not just within the city and university, but
across many of the county's towns from as far south as Henley on Thames to Banbury in the north.
|Throughout those 200 years, Freemasonry has adapted and changed to reflect the many great and social changes that have
formed the bedrock of our present day society.
|During these years, our fraternal society has comfortably retained many of its great traditions and remained true
to our core beliefs, primary amongst which is that of extending the hand of friendship and assistance to those less fortunate
not just here in Oxfordshire, but throughout the country at large and the world beyond.|
|We are open to "all men of all ages", who wish simply to challenge develop and discover more about
themselves, and in that journey find new friends, and to enjoy and embrace an opportunity to bring hope and happiness to
those less fortunate.
|If you think this is for you and can step up to that high mark, then please do
contact us, you will be
as all are, most welcome and I am confident you will not be disappointed.|
