Procedures for Joining

One of the most common misconceptions about Freemasonry - and there are many of them - is that you have to be invited to join. There is no reason why you should not ask to join.

The first and most important step is to satisfy yourself that Freemasonry is an organisation that you really want to join and that you have no expectations that will not be met. You should be aware that those who have joined because they have been mislead into thinking that it would give them business or career advantages have invariably been disappointed and resigned their membership after a short time.

The Lodge will require any prospective member to be interviewed by members of the Lodge Committee. This is not a grilling or designed to be intimidating but is intended to ensure the following :-

If the Committee and yourself are both satisfied with the outcome of the interview, there will be a ballot among the Lodge members at the next Lodge meeting. If you know of any reason why an existing member may not wish you to join and will vote against you in the ballot, it is best to discuss this with the Committee during the interview. Your views or comments will be treated in the strictest confidence. Subject to a successful ballot, you will be advised of the arrangements for you to join.
