Membership - begin the journey
Freemasonry does not discriminate on grounds of race, colour, religion, political views or social standing. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. For many, its biggest draw is the fact that members come from all walks of life and meet as equals whatever their race, religion or socio-economic position in society.
Freemasonry provides a unique environment for people from all backgrounds to learn skills, make lasting friendships, achieve their potential and, above all, have fun.
What is more, the organisation provides a valuable forum for discussion between members in an open environment, helping to build trust.
Freemasons make a major contribution to society through their own charities, as well as through donations to UK charities and worldwide disaster relief funds, with members playing an active role in their communities.
Freemasonry is more relevant and important to society today than ever, as it encompasses and embraces all the fundamental principles of good citizenship.
Many of these are learnt through traditional rituals that take the form of one-act plays, leading to increased self-esteem and confidence.
Every Freemason embarks on his own journey of self-discovery when he joins. With three levels of Freemasonry, the progression through to senior roles within a Lodge
can be seen in much the same way as a person progressing in his career – each promotion bringing greater understanding and responsibility.
There are many reasons for joining the Freemasons. We can answer any questions you might have about our history, our future, what we believe in, the kind of work we do. If you are interested, complete the form here and begin a journey that could change your life for the better.
