Becoming A Mason

The essential qualification for admission into, and continuing membership of Freemasonry is a belief in a Supreme Being.

If you are interested in becoming a Mason, membership is open to men of any race or religion who can fulfill this essential qualification and are over 21 years of age (18 in certain circumstances – being the son of a Mason or joining a University Lodge) and are of good repute.

Please  contact the Lodge Membership Secretary who will be pleased to answer your questions.

The joining procedure usually takes a number of months with time taken to ensure an understanding by the candidate of the commitment both of time and the financial requirement membership entails.

Our regular meetings are held 8 times a year September to April with additional rehearsals, committee meetings and visits to other Lodges possible if  that is of  interest.

Avon Lodge is always pleased to receive applications for membership from eligible candidates, and although we draw most of members from the local surrounding area there is no specific geographical limit placed on members.  If you are interested in learning more and perhaps joining a Lodge in another part of the country we will be happy to direct your enquiry to a more suitable location.
