Sovereignty Meeting

The Ancient Masonic Order of Alfred the Great became a Sovereign Order at a memorable meeting of the King's Council of the Order in Leicester on 1st July 2023.

Over 100 Knights of the Order gathered to witness the unique pageant of the signing of a Charter of Sovereignty by the Grand Master of the Masonic Order of Athelstan MWBro PW Johnston,Past Sovereign Grand Master and the Sovereign Grand Master of AMOAG, Sir Kt Dr Christopher Ansell, who was installed into that office immediately prior to the signing of the Charter.

The Sovereign Grand Master also installed Sir Kt William H Carlyon as Grand Legate and confirmed and invested the Grand Chancellors for the Regions of the Order.

The newly sovereign Order also adopted new statutes defining its membership and its new geographical regions and structure. Our members will be drawn from Past Masters of the MOA, with whom we will continue to have a strong and indissoluble bond of Masonic friendship and co-operation.
