Freemasonry is open to men over the age of 21 of sound moral character, regardless of religious beliefs, or origin. The first step is to let us know that you’re interested in becoming a Freemason by dropping us a quick line. Once we’ve received your letter, we’ll arrange to provide you with an initial application form. It’s easy and straightforward to complete and simply asks you a few questions about yourself. If you’re happy to provide the answers all you need to do is sign it and return it to the address below or we’ll try and pick this up from you personally so we can meet you and answer any questions you may have.
You’ll require a Proposer and a Seconder to help you to the next stage. These would need to be Freemasons that are already known to you, but if you don’t personally know of any, then we’ll try and find an alternative solution. You will also need two non-Masonic and two Masonic character references. Your friends, colleagues, or even golf club members or similar will suffice. If you wish, we can write to them directly if this helps. If you do not know any Freemasons who would provide a reference, let us know and we’ll try and help.
Remember, Freemasonry is not for everyone and everyone is not for Freemasonry. Once your official application has been accepted by the members and by the United Grand Lodge of England, we will contact you to arrange to meet with you in your own home to explain next steps and answer any questions you may have.
Each member is entitled to visit other Lodges should he wish and each year there are many social activities throughout the Province to which your partner, family or friends would be warmly welcome. So, all in all, Freemasonry can be very satisfying, interesting and enjoyable with a big emphasis on everyone having fun.
Send your letter simply stating that you are interested in becoming a Freemason and joining Boldmere Lodge. Include your date of birth, occupation, or previous occupation if you are retired. Let us have your telephone number and e-mail address if you have one. We look forward to hearing from you and to helping you take the first step towards what might become the journey of a lifetime.
