Who can become a Freemason?

Our fraternity has a wonderful history, which dates back more than three centuries. It is one of the world's oldest secular fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences.

People might think that to become a Freemason is quite difficult. It's actually straightforward.

The essential qualifications for admission is that you have a belief in a Supreme Being.

It is usual for candidates to be "mature men of 21 years and over", but in some circumstances candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted.

 
 

 

Who can join?

Membership is open to men of all faiths who are law-abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in God. Freemasonry is a multi-racial and multi-cultural organisation. It has attracted men of goodwill from all sectors of the community into membership. There are similar Masonic organisations for women.

 
     
 

Suggested Steps

After reading the various booklets available on the United Grand Lodge Web Site site, if you are still 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 to you what they can about the fraternity and help you find a suitable Lodge such as Seven Kings see contact details on the contact us page.

If you don't know anyone at all who is a member, then get in touch with a Masonic Office in your area, see ' Index to Provinces '. Write to that office, telling them a little bit about yourself and your reasons for wishing to join.

If in London, contact the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London (33 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AA. Tel: 020 7539 2930) or contact Freemasons' Hall.

Arrangements will be made to meet you socially to find out more about you, and to give you a chance to find out more about us.

You would then in due course be invited to meet a committee of members from a Lodge you might be joining, prior to being balloted for membership of that Lodge.

All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.
