Who can become a Freemason?
Our fraternity has a wonderful history, which dates back more than three centuries. It is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims 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 straightforward. The essential qualifications for admission are that you have a belief in a Supreme Being.
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.
If you don’t know anyone at all who is a member, then you can click the link at the bottom of the page to make enquiries and get in touch our Secretary who will be more than happy to assist with any enquiries that you may have.
Arrangements will be made to meet you socially to find out more about you, and to give you a chance to find out more about us. You would then in due course be invited to meet a committee of members from a Lodge you might be joining, prior to being balloted for membership of that Lodge. All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.
