QUALIFICATIONS FOR MEMBERSHIP
The three essential qualifications for membership to Freemasonry cover your spiritual, moral and physical aspects. The qualifications are as follows:-
The essential spiritual qualification is that you must believe in a Supreme Being. Membership is open to men of any race or religion who can fulfil this essential qualification and who can satisfy the other two requirements.
The moral qualification is that you must be of good repute, a loyal citizen and obedient to the laws of the land.
The physical qualification is that you are male and must be at least 21 years old. This age qualification exists to ensure that you are free to formulate your opinions, and exercise your own judgement.
Wives, partners and families of members are of course, encouraged to enjoy many of the social aspects of Freemasonry, but it is only men who are eligible for membership.
WHAT FREEMASONRY CAN OFFER
Freemasonry is a way of life where men can meet regularly in order to be active in the support of its own members, their ideals and of the community at large. What you will get out of membership of Freemasonry will be reflected by the effort you make to integrate with the other members of the Lodge. We are sure that you will gain far more from your membership than you expect, by becoming a Freemason and a more useful citizen in your community.
There are no mandates associated with your membership. After becoming a full member of the Lodge, you may be content to remain as a non-active member within the Lodge and just enjoy the fraternal gatherings.
We hope however that you will decide to progress through the various positions of responsibility within the ritual to become Master of this Lodge. One of the benefits of becoming active in the ritual side of our ceremonies, which will assist you in everyday life, is that by increasing your mental capacity for memorising it will give you more self-confidence in speaking in front of your fellow men.
