Becoming a Freemason

  • If 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 contacting your nearest membership officer via the contact us by email click here

    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.
