Joining Freemasonry

This Broomwood Lodge Welcomes You.

First of all, our fraternity has a wonderful history, which was started 70 years ago in 1945. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternities of men concerned in upholding both moral and spiritual values. It is founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth,  aiming to bringing together men regardless of background and difference.  Many would consider that to become a Freemason is probably both complex and mysterious but it really is quite straight forward. The only essential qualifications for you to be admitted is having a belief in a ‘Supreme Being’. I know, at this point you are wondering what this actually means… but we can explain more when you get in touch. It is common practise for candidates to be “mature men of 21 years and over”. Many members often invite friends, work colleagues and even relatives to consider joining. It is not a problem if you don’t know a member, simply go to the contacts page, provide some background information about yourself, and the reasons why you want to become a Freemason.

Upon receipt of your letter, we will make suitable arrangements to meet you socially so that you can find out more about us and to give us a chance to find out more about you. In due course, you could be invited to meet a committee of members from the Lodge, prior to being balloted for possible membership. If this is approved, a date would then be fixed for your admission.

Don’t be put off as by doing this you are not committing yourself to anything at this stage and we will contact you as soon as possible.

In the meantime we have detailed below a number of sections which will give you further insight into what Freemasonry is all about.

Suggested Steps, If you are interested in becoming a Freemason, we recommend that you consult The Metropolitan Grand Lodge website, which will give you a greater insight in the full depth of what freemasonry is all about.


After having shown an interest in becoming a member of our Freemasons’ Lodge, the following information will assist you to understand more about our organisation. It explains what you may expect from us on becoming a member and what is expected from you.

From the time the ballot is successfully concluded within the Lodge,  you are accepted as a future member. Your mentor, proposer, seconder and the secretary of the Lodge will keep you fully informed regarding your application to join us and will help you with your anticipated start in Freemasonry.

Before becoming a full member and enjoying all the rights and privileges of full participation, you will be conducted through two further progressive separate but simple ceremonies. This process may take a few months or more and to do this your commitment to attend the Lodge of instruction will be required. You will also need to attend our Lodge meetings which take place four times each year to enable you to learn more about how the lodge functions and the processes involved.
