Discover Freemasonry

In an increasingly divisive world, many people are looking for unity and purpose to help guide their way.

Compassion and respect are more important now than ever before.

Freemasonry is one of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, open to those of all backgrounds.

Its roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles.

Our aim is to empower members to be the best they can be, both for themselves and for society around them.

It does this by providing a structure of support to help make positive contributions to their local communities, whether it be through fundraising events or volunteer work.

In an uncertain world, the principles of Freemasonry: integrity, friendship, respect and charity ring as true today as they ever have before.
