Thinking of Joining Freemasonry

Before applying to join Freemasonry you should; to avoid any embarrassment later; make yourself aware of the membership requirements below. Of course, if you already know any Freemasons then they too should be able to advise you.

Membership Requirements

Anyone offering himself as a candidate should be 21 years of age or over and of good repute, and should be entirely assured in his own mind:

  • that he sincerely seeks intellectual and moral improvement for himself and others.
  • that he has a belief in a supreme being (God as you understand him).
  • that he is able to afford the necessary expenditure without detriment to himself or his connections. Financial ability to pay lodge subscriptions and contribute to charity, without having an adverse impact on his family.
  • that he is willing and able to devote part of his time, his means and his efforts, to the promotion of the aims of our ancient Institution. To make a commitment to attend Lodge meetings, rehearsals, socials and events.
  • that he will never seek commercial, social or pecuniary advantage from his membership.
Hand Shake
If you can uphold the above requirements and think that Freemasonry may be for you or you would like to find out more, then please email our Lodge Secretary.

~ What every Candidate should know ~

We look forward to welcoming you to our Lodge and hope you will contribute to the future of Freemasonry in whatever way you can. You and your family will be made most welcome.
