Becoming a Freemason

  • Why-I-became-a-Freemason-Spencer-Sutcliffe-Pic-1If you are interested in becoming a Freemason we advise that you first talk to a family member, friend or colleague whom you already know to be a member. They will be able to explain some of the workings of Freemasonry and help you find a suitable lodge to join.

    If you don’t know anyone who is already a member please get in touch with the membership team by completing the form on the contact us page.

    The only essential qualifications for admission to Freemasonry are:

    • That you have a belief in a ‘Supreme Being’. This means that you profess a religious faith. Freemasonry is not restricted to certain faiths. Freemasons meet all over the world and embraces men of many differing religions.
    • It is usual for candidates to be ‘mature men of 21 years and over’, but in some circumstances younger candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted.
    • To be of good character.
