Welcome to the home of Lodge De Goede Trouw.

Since 1763 the number 2 lodge in the Grand Lodge of South Africa has been home to brethren from all walks of life.

Visitors are always welcome and we invite you to contact our Bro. Secretary to confirm times etc. on 083 653 8675 or via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our Fundraisers

Lodge De Goede Trouw has developed an exceptional reputation for it's social and entertaining Whisky Tastings throughout the year. We typically hold 3-4 tastings and have hosted a variety of brands and offerings - always accompanied by the best Brand Ambassadors available and interesting trivia around the history of Whisky. Evenings are open to all and we encourage the ladies to join us. Space is limited to 50 seats per tasting and tickets sell really fast! We would urge you to book and confirm early to guarantee your place.

 

Our Craft

Our lodge has undergone much growth in the past three years. We have STRIVEN to grow our numbers with quality candidates who are active participants in the life of our Lodge. We encourage new ideas and inspirations that while still falling within the honoured (honoured) traditions of the Craft also provide a new and dynamic dimension to our Lodge. As such we place emphasis on active participation in social events, fellowship and our workings.

We encourage our members to visit sister constitutions and all other lodges as often as possible and to learn more about the side degrees available to them. Brethren from our Lodge are proud members of various side degrees.

 

Our 2017 vision is to "CONSOLIDATE"

We are using the time-honoured foundations of De Goede Trouw to take our Lodge forward and grow from strength to strength and the 2017 year will be one of introspection and refining our workings and establishing ourselves.
