Essential Qualifications for Membership

The essential qualification for admission to Freemasonry is a belief in a Supreme Being. Membership is open to men of integrity from any race or religion who can fulfil this essential qualification.

Why Become a Freemason?

Other than a commonly shared desire to make oneself more generally useful to one's fellow man, the reasons why people join Freemasonry and the things they like about it are as varied as the membership itself.

Many hold the view that membership of Freemasonry helps one to become a better person.

For some, it is a simple quest for knowledge born out of an interest to learn more about the history and mysteries that are held within Freemasonry.

For others, charity and the chance to put something back into Society through Masonic Charity is the appeal.

Brotherhood and the chance to meet and become friends with a broad spectrum of people from all walks of life (ages 21 and upwards) appeals to many.

Self improvement, learning through the practice of ritual, after dinner speech making and the achievement that comes from progression through the various Lodge Officers culminates in the Office of Worshipful Master.

Although Freemasonry has serious aims and important ideals to convey, most members also join to enjoy the fellowship, the conversation and simply have fun.

Membership comprises men of all ages, races, colours, religions, political beliefs and financial or social standing.
