This free event has been organised by Neil Biles, Community Chaplain based at St Mary’s and Ebenezer Churches, and Andrew Knowles of Weymouth Family Church.

Come with your questions and be prepared to share your opinions. Two hours is nowhere near enough time to tackle this vast topic, but let’s make a start.

This event is supported by Weymouth Family Church, St Aldhelm’s and St Mary’s churches, and is open to anyone interested in helping their church to connect to more people.

*What are the ‘digital generations’? Almost every adult under 45, and most of those over 45! (Based on figures from Ofcom 2018).

The Historical Impact of Freemasonry on Weymouth and Portland

Friday 10th May – 2.30pm Session One. 7pm Session Two in St John’s Hall, Portland. 

David Tidy is founder of “Prayer Warriors International”, and has been recommended by Mike and Pat Field. He and a small team are coming to Portland to instruct us about Freemasonry, and its negative impact on the spiritual atmosphere of Portland. FM has been in this area since 1736 with the creation of the Three Crown Lodge, Weymouth.  However, given that Portland has a very long history with stonemasons, it is highly likely that FM’s existence is far older than 1736. David is unusual in that, he not only deals with the way it impacts individuals, but also how it impacts the geographical area. You are more than welcome to come and listen to what he has to say.

Please let me know if you would like to attend Rev Tim Gomm, Team Rector of Portland.
