Within Warwickshire, Knights Templar is an order in which we are encouraged to have fun and derive enjoyment from everything that we do and the company of our fellow Knights. As a smaller order than Craft and Chapter we thrive on the intimacy that this affords us. Many Knights are such regular attendees within the province that the lines between member and visitor become blissfully blurred very quickly. Friendships are quickly forged and seldom cast aside as some of our expatriate Knights will hopefully testify.

Provincial Meetings

The Annual Provincial Malta Meeting is held on the 2nd Saturday in February.

The Province holds an annual Preceptory of Improvement. Supported by Bro Knights from from around the Province, rehearsals take place prior the the annual meeting itself usually in April.

Our Annual Provincial Meeting is held in June when new provincial appointments and promotions are made. This event is hosted by the Provincial Prior, with many prominent visiting Knights from other Provinces in attendance. Following the meeting we are joined by our Ladies for a festive board.

We hold our Annual Provincial Church service on the 2nd Sunday in July at Temple Balsall. This is traditionally proceeded with a Luncheon with our Ladies and end with tea and cakes after the service.

Throughout the year the Provincial Prior, escorted by the Provincial Officers and the Provincial Priors Bodyguard attend Preceptories in the Province on official visits.
