Interested in Joining?

Why should I become a Freemason. is undoubtedly a very good question to ask yourself. Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society.

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisatios.  It is founded on three Great Principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Membership is open to men of all faiths who, with few exceptions are 21 years of age and who acknowledge a belief in a Supreme Being, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences.

Candidates for Freemasonry are required not to expect, anticipate or seek any preferment or financial benefit as a consequence of becoming a member and there should be no conflict between a candidate's family, business or professional interests and membership.
