What does Freemasonry offer me personally?

Freemasonry has many personal benefits. Among these are the potential for strong affiliations, and trusted and lasting friendships with those who share a concern for human values, moral standards and the rights of individuals. Freemasonry is an organisation that promotes self development, the family, and community values.

 

Are there benefits for my family?

Freemasonry can provide men and their families with a fun and active social life with like-minded people. Many lasting friendships exist among people who have met through our organisation. Family values are an important part of a Freemason’s life and families are frequently invited to take part in charitable work, social activities and get togethers.

 

Are there benefits to be gained for my business?

Freemasonry provides men with an opportunity for public service and hands-on involvement in charitable and community activities, as well as the chance to socialise with men from all walks of life. But it is not a business networking organisation. Freemasons are prohibited from using membership to promote their own or anyone else’s business, professional or personal interests.

 

Freemasons and their families gain automatic entry to Masonic retirement villages, if they wish?

Freemasons and their families do not get automatic entry to Masonic retirement villages. If a vacancy arises a masonic connection may be helpful, but having that connection does not ensure entry to a village.
