Welcome to the web-site of Internet Lodge No: 9659
Are you a Freemason looking for information about the Craft or just a curious person willing to understand what is about Freemasonry in general? If so then this is the right place to start.
I have the privilege to become the 22nd Master of this unique lodge Internet Lodge 9659, an international lodge with members from all continents, coming from different countries and masonic constitutions.
Internet Lodge 9659 is a regular lodge under the United Grand Lodge of England, being very special due to a wide diversity of languages and cultures. From Europe to Australia and from Brazil to Japan our members enjoy the masonic knowledges and great friendship using the benefit of the modern communications technology.
We meet physically three times per year in various locations in England but between meetings much of our work is taking place on line, via our e-mail list and this web site. Our members are in contact on daily basis working to do projects together, to share their Masonic knowledges, to visit each other, to become involved in charity activities or just to spend quality friendship moments together. A fourth meeting being a fraternal visit to a different country can be decided by the Worshipful Master.
We now have over 500 members and we continue to grow
Our members come from all over the world. We have members in every continent (excluding Antartica !). We have members in over 40 different countries including: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Grenada, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Netherlands, Peru, The Philippines, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and the United States of America; as well as Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man and from all corners of England and Wales. Our members are from almost 100 different Grand Lodges.

We are pleased to publish an Introduction to English Freemasonry, which is based on an original idea by the Grand Lodge of Western Australia. It attempts to explain much about English Freemasonry and is particularly intended to be of help to Freemasons of different constitutions.
