What is Freemasonry
Many people think they know what Freemasonry is and what is does, but sometimes you really do need to find out for yourself.
Talking to a Freemason will give you a better understanding of what Freemasonry is and they really will want to talk to you about it. You do not need to be invited.
Enjoy a Challenge
You’ve probably heard stories about Masonic ceremonies, and we’re not going to say there aren’t any, because there are. However, our ceremonies are intended to have clear and positive purposes; not least, to encourage individual participation, public speaking, personal development and confidence building. They are most certainly not blood curdling and frightening ghoulish rituals – Sorry to disappoint!
Make Friends
For some it’s about making new friends, and who doesn’t like making friends? Joining a Masonic Lodge is like becoming a member of a big family, and it only gets better when you start visiting other lodges.
Help Others
For many it’s about being able to help others. Freemasons are supporters of charity, especially those that serve the local community. But that doesn’t make us special, it just gives us a special feeling.
Include the Family
Family and Friends are important to Freemasons; fun days, barbecues and black ties evenings are a feature of many Freemason’s Lodges. Thesse events are an important part of the social calendar allowing Friends and Family to be included. Making friends and helping the community makes membership and enjoyable and fulfilling activity. Freemasonry gives you access to be able to do this more easily.
“Fits around your Lifestyle”
Freemasons like to have flamboyant get togethers, but amongst them will be the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker! Freemasonry welcomes all people that believe in:
