Welcome to St. John's Lodge 795

St. John’s Lodge was consecrated at Maidenhead Town Hall on the 24th October 1859, and the Warrant is dated 2 July 1859. The Lodge was originally numbered 1097, but renumbered to 795 on the 6th of July 1863.

St. John's Lodge is one of only two Lodges in the Province of Berkshire who practise Taylor's workings. We meet at Sindlesham on the 3rd Wednesday of May, June, September, and October (Installation). As we do not meet beyond October, we have held our Christmas themed Meeting in June for many years. Why not join us in June for your "first Christmas dinner of the year"? Likewise, for many years our September Meeting has been "curry night".  If you would like to vist our Lodge, you will be made most welcome at any of our Meetings. Please contact our Secretary, W.Bro. Derek Scott at, to arrange a visit.

St. John's also have a Holy Royal Arch Chapter, which meet at Windsor Masonic Hall, on the 3rd Thursday of January, March, and November (Installation). The Chapter use Domatic Workings. Any Companion wishing to visit please contact the Lodge Secretary who will put you in touch with our Scribe E.
