Thinking about becoming a Freemason?
Why Join Freemasonry?
Because it’s a lot of Fun!
A Freemason’s Lodge provides wide-ranging opportunities for great camaraderie, socialising, having fun and making new friends.
Because it’s Worthwhile!
Freemasonry is a worthwhile way to spend some of your free time. It provides a real chance to make a positive impact in the Community and to make a real difference to the lives of people who are in need of assistance.
Because it’s a Challenge!
If you are looking to challenge yourself then Freemasonry uniquely provides many ways in which you can grow and develop both morally and intellectually. The various aspects of running a Lodge provide real life experience in such diverse areas as Administration, Financial Management, Event Planning, Fundraising, Training & Education, Public Speaking and Social Welfare.
Because it’s Fascinating!
Freemasonry affords its members the chance to become part of a rich historical and cultural tradition which has existed for over 300 years. Freemasonry has become part of the social fabric of our Nation to the extent that masonic phrases such as “Past Master” and “On the Level” have become part of our everyday language. Its basic principles of Compassion, Benevolence and Integrity provide its members with a moral framework by which to live, to attain a greater knowledge of themselves, and an opportunity for personal, intellectual and spiritual development.
Because it’s Relevant!
Freemasonry remains relevant in the 21st Century because it addresses real issues and real needs. Whether dealing with the consequences of a major natural disaster like the Indian Ocean Tsunami, social problems such a homelessness or poverty, or personal difficulties such as illness, ageing or bereavement, as a result of its enormous fund-raising abilities, Freemasonry can bring aid, relief and hope to people throughout the world.
Because it’s Inclusive
Freemasons are the type of people who like to live morally, are good citizens who treasure family values and wish to make a difference by supporting their communities through charity.
Membership is open to men from all walks of life regardless of Race, Creed, or Nationality, who are looking for a chance to put something back into Society.

Most of our members welcome talking to you about our lodge and helping you either join them or find a more suitable lodge that matches your personal and working life. Your family, working and personal life responsibilities are paramount to us as Freemasons and finding the correct Lodge is just as important.
