" Mundy Grove Making Good Men Better "

What is Freemasonry ?

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.


Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisation. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry. The following information is intended to explain Freemasonry as it is practised under the United Grand Lodge of England, which administers Lodges of Freemasons in England and Wales and in many places overseas.


Freemasonry is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members are taught its principles (moral lessons and self-knowledge) by a series of ritual dramas - a progression of allegorical two-part plays which are learnt by heart and performed within each Lodge - which follow ancient forms, and use stonemasons’ customs and tools as allegorical guides.


Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

Is Freemasonry a secret society?

Far from being any kind of secret society our accounts are published and anyone examining them may be surprised to discover that the money distributed to charity by Freemasons in the UK comes second only to the National Lottery.

Sometimes we are asked who can be a Freemason? Do you need to be a professional or successful in your career? The answer in each case being no. With an estimated membership of five million Freemasons worldwide we have members across the whole spectrum.

Apart from the fact that you must be at least twenty one years of age there is only one absolute requirement to becoming a Freemason and that is a belief in a supreme being. It matters not one bit what you might call this supreme being and we take pride in the fact that at any Masonic meeting you are likely to find a wide range of religions represented.

If you are already a Freemason you will know that there really is no financial advantage to you in business from being a Mason but if you would like to do something essentially good and spend some of your time helping others less fortunate than yourself, then perhaps you should consider becoming a Freemason yourself.

Charity

From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged.    This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities,

  The Masonic Samaritan Fund is a charity funded by Freemasons and their families. We provide grants to eligible beneficiaries who have an identified health or care need and, faced with a long wait for treatment, care or support, are unable to afford their own private care.

The Freemasons’ Grand Charity is funded by Freemasons and their families and is continuing a commitment to charitable support that began nearly 300 years ago. Individual Masonic Lodges make gifts and give aid to their own communities and every Province also gives large sums of money to regional causes. Nationally, our efforts are channelled through four main charity organisations. Every year we award grants on behalf of thousands of individuals. In 2011, these totalled £4.1 million, Since 1981 we have donated over £50 million to national charities. Grants are currently given in the categories of medical research, vulnerable people and youth opportunities.

  The Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys is a charity funded by Freemasons which aims to relieve poverty and advance education for children and young people.

The RMBI has been caring for older Freemasons and their dependants for over 160 years. We operate 17 residential care homes across England and Wales offering high quality care.
