How to Join us

Our fraternity has a wonderful history, which dates back more than three centuries. It is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences.

People might think that to become a Freemason is quite difficult. It’s actually straightforward.

The essential qualifications for admission is that you have a belief in a Supreme Being……we’ll explain more when you get in touch.

It is usual for candidates to be “mature men of 21 years and over”, but in some circumstances candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted. There is no upper limit on joining age, indeed many people join when their lives are more settled and when reduced Family concerns allow the time for commitment. We also welcome Joining members from other Lodges.

If you don’t know a member, you may contact the Lodge Promotion Officer of The Old Halesonian Lodge. Please do so by email, providing some background information about yourself, and the reasons why you want to become a Freemason in general and a member of The Old Halesonian Lodge in particular. Please address all emails to the following, click link ‘The Lodge Promotion Officer’

Upon receipt of your email, arrangements will be made to meet you socially to find out more about you, and to give you a chance to findout more about us. In due course, you would then be invited to meet a committee of members from the Lodge, prior to being balloted for membership. All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.
