Who can join Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is a multi racial and multi cultural organisation. Membership is open to men aged 21 or over, who are law abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in a Supreme Being.
If you are interested in finding out more about Freemasonry with a view to joining, have a look at the United Grand Lodge of England website, or you can use the Alar Lodge contact form to ask any questions, and we will do our best to answer them.
How to apply to join
If you are interested in joining, then in the first instance please contact the Alar Lodge Secretary on our “Contact” page, who will explain the process. At this stage a preliminary meeting may be arranged for you to meet with one or two members of the Lodge, as an informal discussion for you to ask questions about Freemasonry in general, and Alar Lodge in particular.
What happens next?
The next stage will be for you to submit a formal application form. Then, a formal interview will be arranged with a panel of Lodge members, who will discuss with you your reasons for wanting to become a Freemason, and that you understand the requirements and commitment of membership.
The Lodge members will also need to be reassured that you have discussed your possible membership with your family, and that they are supportive. By the same token this is your opportunity to interview the Lodge members and to satisfy yourself that Freemasonry is for you.
