GUIDING PRINCIPLES OF FREEMASONRY
Rather than working on buildings like our ancient masons, today’s freemasons work on building themselves as people of integrity and membership provides the framework to help them achieve their personal goals.i
One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is open to people from all religions and political persuasions, and provides the common foundation for lifetime friendships between members.
With a membership of almost 200,000 people drawn from across the UK, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences.
Caring for others is deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry. It provides a support structure that helps members make positive contributions to communities and worthwhile causes.
