There are a range of benefits associated with becoming a Freemason which include;
Becoming a better person and a better memeber of the local community by seeking a more complete understanding of ourselves, our lives and our relationships with our God and with our neighbours, through Masonic ceremonies and allegories
Sxperiencing the unique experience of Freemasonry through fellowship and socialising with men and their families who share a common philosophy of life and have a shared purpose. It is one of the oldest and most successful opportunities to make lasting friendships.
Learning more about our duties in society by meeting, sharing and discussing Masonic principles with like-minded people
Developing our personal potential to be an influence for good in society through opportunities to practise charity in all its forms
improved personal achievements by learning new skills from peers and mentors in a safe environment where the only reward is that of an increased sense of individual worth. Taking a part in the workings of the Lodge is a great testing ground for your public speaking, teamwork and communication which boosts self confidence and results in growth as a person.
The opportunity to use life skills acquired through work or study to help those, who may not have had similar opportunities, to improve themselves.
Meeting with people from all walks of life – broadening the mind through friendships as equals – enjoying the levelling effect of all being Brothers together irrespective of social, financial, occupational, public, private or religious position and status. Freemasonry as an organisation does wonderful work as the third largest donor to charity after the National Lottery and Children in Need which attracts as members many who are great role models.
