The Requirements to Join a Freemasons Lodge

In order to become a Freemason, you need some basic qualifications.

  • You must believe in a Supreme Being.

  • You must be joining of your own free will.

  • You must be at least 21 years old.

  • You must come recommended by at least two existing Freemasons from the lodge you’re petitioning (Don't be concerned if you don't know any Freemasons, you can visit our social events prior to your application to get to know us)


If you meet these requirements the first stage is an interview with senior members of the Lodge. This isn’t like a job interview and is there to establish the qualifications previously mentioned and to explain the steps of becoming a Freemason.

It will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

After the interview you will be proposed at a Lodge meeting and a secret ballot will be taken using black and white balls.

After this stage you will then (after completing some basic paperwork) be initiated into the Lodge (see the What do we do page for more information on this).

If you want to know more or have any questions the contact details are under the FAQs
