Why Become A Freemason?

 

 

 

 

The benefits that members gain from Freemasonry may be described as follows:

Making New Connections.

Becoming a member of a lodge provides the opportunity to make new lifelong friends. It gives you that ‘local’ feeling where you can meet regularly to eat and drink, have fun and feel supported by a group of like-minded people sharing common values in a unique setting.

Community Involvement.

As a member of a lodge you have the opportunity to get involved with your local community through charitable and social events. Fundraising and charity is at the heart of Freemasonry and getting involved provides you, your partners, family and friends the opportunity to connect with people locally and make a real difference to the lives of others.

Personal Development.

In Freemasonry you take part in interactive “plays”, first as a passive participant before moving on to more active and involved roles. Along the way, you hear about, look at, contemplate and describe various symbolic artifacts, learn the different levels of meaning behind them; all the while you practice the behaviours you can implement in daily life. Our ceremonial traditions encourage us to be both more tolerant and respectful and to fulfill our civic responsibilities.

Freemasonry Encourages Interaction with Diverse Groups of People.

A lodge often has a diverse membership. Having no political or religious affiliations, we comprise members of all races, religions, cultures and backgrounds, range in age from 18 to 80 or older, and from a wide range of professions. You would not easily have access to such a broad range of people in most other areas of your life.

Freemasonry Activities Improve Your Confidence.

Many lodge activities provide opportunities to deliver impromptu or planned speeches, hold offices, and to think on your feet. Networking opportunities, learning from peers and mentors and practicing lines for our ceremonies can help you to develop skills beneficial to both your professional and personal life.

Freemasonry is a Global Community.

Once you become a Freemason, you can travel across the United Kingdom, and in many cases the World, meeting other Freemasons with whom you can connect with, find affinity, and take opportunities to broaden your own horizons.

Freemasonry has more than 200,000 members spread throughout England and Wales and worldwide. In total, we have more than 7,000 Lodges, with students over 18 able to join one of the 85 University Scheme Lodges.

Women can join one of two female-only organisations: 

The Order of Women Freemasons and Freemasonry for Women.

Long Tradition of Support and inspiration.

When you become a Freemason, you join a long tradition of great men in many fields who found inspiration and support in this organisation. You are embraced into an organisation that genuinely cares for each of its members and wants to see them excel and meet life’s challenges with strength and integrity. It can help to reach your potential.

History and Heritage.

Freemasonry treasures its rich history and the extraordinary characters who have been associated with it since 1717. Its rich heritage, for those who are intrigued by its history and mysteries, can be found catalogued amongst the impressive collection of books in the Library at Freemasons Hall which you are welcome to visit. It contains texts and documents acquired over many centuries. It has an extensive art and artifact collection, which brings the history of Freemasonry to life.

Freemasonry Provides Access to Intellectual Discussions and Talks.

Lodges provide regular opportunities to attend lectures on a broad range of topics. Sometimes these lectures focus on themes like integrity, charity and leadership.

Special Interest Lodges.

Members may choose from a wide variety of special interest Lodges. These have been formed by members to enjoy shared interests and can enrich the social calendar. For example, there are Fine Dining Lodges, Rugby Lodges, Cycling Lodges and Heritage Lodges to list a few.
