Becoming a Freemason

We welcome enquiries about membership from qualified persons.

To qualify, you must:

  • be a man of 18 years or older, and
  • be of good character, and
  • believe in a supreme being, although your particular faith does not matter.

(An entirely separate order exists for women; further information may be obtained by writing to the Grand Secretary of the United Grand Lodge of England.)

Although belief in a supreme being is required to join, we do not discriminate on the grounds of religion, ethnic group, sexuality, economic or social standing. We are neither political in nature nor religious. To join, new members must swear an oath (on the sacred book of their own faith) to uphold the law of our country, at all times.
