Freemasonry & How To Join


Freemasonary has a remarkable history dating back more than three centuries and is one of the world's oldest secular fraternities. We are a society of men concerned with upholding social and moral values and who believe in three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth and we aim to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences. 

People might think that to become a Freemason is quite difficult.  It's actually quite simple. 

The essential qualifications for admission is that you have a belief in a Supreme Being . . . we'll explain more if you get in touch.

It is usual for candidates to be "mature men of 21 years and over", but in some circumstances candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted.
