Freemasonry is based on a set of long-standing values and principles; however, these are as relevant today as they have always been:
Freemasonry has always been about making good men better. Individuals aim to build and shape their lives round four core values:
Integrity: Building Good People
Freemasons are focused on building themselves as people of integrity and membership provides the structure to help achieve that goal.
Friendship: Building Together
Freemasonry provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.
Respect: Building Unity
Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society..
Charity: Building Compassion
Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry and the organisation provides the structure for members to make positive contributions to their communities and various causes.
"IS FREEMASONRY FOR ME?"
Freemasonry means different things to each individual – making new friends, contributing to society, celebrating a long tradition, experiencing personal growth, taking up a hobby, having fun.
