Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies. It is a society of men who are concerned with moral and spiritual values.

Freemasonry is founded on the four guiding principles of Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.

Integrity: Building good people

Rather than working on buildings like the masons of old, today’s Freemasons focus on building themselves as people of integrity.

Friendship: Building together

One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions.

Respect: Building unity

With a membership of over 200,000 from communities across the country, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race or religion.

Charity: Building compassion

Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry.
