|How can I become a Freemason?|
If you are 21 years of age (or 18 if you are the son of a Mason), of good character and background and believe in God you can become a Freemason. If you are known to a Freemason it is helpful, but this is not essential. All potential members go through an informal and friendly interview after which, if put forward, all members of the Lodge take part in a ballot.
Freemasonry is open to men of all faiths and within Staffordshire Lodges members include Roman Catholics, Methodists, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, Anglicans and Protestants.
You must subscribe to being of service to others and to self improvement, rather than looking for personal gain. Freemasons are forbidden to use their membership for personal gain or advantage in any way.
If you want to take your interest further please send an email to our Lodge Secretary who will then contact you directly.
What does Freemasonry offer me personally?
Above all else becoming a Freemason provides men with the opportunity to meet and develop friendships with like minded men and share ideals and objectives. These can include developing self confidence, self esteem and being a good citizen. Members are also provided with training, if they want it, in self development, public speaking and communication skills.
