Celebrating 300 Years of Freemasonry

It's 300 years since four London Lodges met to establish the world's first Grand Lodge for Freemasons. Today there are over 6.5 million freemasons worldwide.

We make good man better

Freemasonry is founded on the grand principles of brotherly love, relief and truth through which offers a mean for making good men better.

To be one, ask one

The first thing to recognise is that a man becomes a Freemason only through his own volition. We do not solicit members!

Happy to meet

We’re glad you found us!
