Freemasonry is one of the most Ancient and Honourable, largest fraternal, non-political, non-sectarian, charitable societies in the world. Freemasonry is open to men of good reputation and from any race, creed or religion and have a belief in a Supreme Being.

Freemasonry is not, now, or has ever been a religion, or even a substitute for religion. Each candidate for Freemasonry is exhorted to practice his religion and to regard his holy book as the unerring standard of truth. Freemasonry does not instruct its members in what their religious beliefs should be, nor does it offer sacraments. Thus Freemasonry brings men from different faiths and beliefs together in a unique way to share a happy and rewarding friendship together.

Freemasonry teaches moral lessons and self knowledge, through participation in a progression of allegorical two part plays, which are learnt by heart and performed within all Lodges.

From its earliest days Freemasonry has been involved in charitable work. Since its inception, it has provided support for many widows and orphans of Freemasons, as well as many others within its community. All monies raised for Charity are drawn from among Freemasons, their families and friends, and donations and grants are made to Masonic and non-Masonic charities alike.
