Why Join The Freemasons
Why join the Freemasons?
Explore why men from all walks of life join our Masonic Lodge in Surbiton, Surrey.
Ask any Mason why he joined and you will get varying answers but for most it is the true spirit of Brotherhood and a feeling of belonging to something very special. But here are the most common reasons:
Exploring the history – Freemasonry has been established for a very long time not just in the United Kingdom but throughout the world. There are many books available on the subject and here in the UK we have a splendid museum dedicated to the history of Freemasons. Anyone can visit the museum which is at Freemasons Hall, Great Queen St, London.
Social and sports – Most Freemasons lodges have an active social calendar for the benefit of members and their family. Social gatherings include BBQ’s, quiz nights, lunches, days out and of course Ladies Nights.
In the Province of Surrey you can also take part in any number of sporting activities such as golf, fishing, clay shooting, cycling and archery.
Charity – The essence of Freemasonry! Some enjoy belonging to the second largest organization in the UK that gives to both Masonic and non Masonic charities with the National Lottery being the first.
Fraternal brotherhood – One of the most appealing aspects of Freemasonry is sharing a unique experience with like minded men from all walks of life. You just do not know who you will meet! It does not matter what your status is in life or your religion, or race. Freemasonry is equal for all!
Self development – A key feature of Freemasonry is the ability to learn more about ones self and to become a better, more useful person in society.
There are many, many aspects to Freemasonry (to many to mention here). You can choose what you want to do once you have been admitted. You will always have the full support of Astede Lodge.
Heard the saying “you get out of it what you put into it” That is never more true of Freemasonry!
