Membership Team Event

Our Provincial Membership Team have completed their latest 2 information events for potential candidates. The open events took place at Darlington on 12th January and at Chester le Street on the 27th and were hosted by the 2 “Andrews”, Messrs Moule & Foster.

In total, 17 prospective Members were in attendance at the 2 events and they were treated to a wonderful insight into Freemasonry in general and on joining a Lodge in the Province of Durham in particular.

Many of those in attendance had approached the Membership Team during the recent local digital marketing campaign and were delighted to be able to find out more about our wonderful fraternity.

Feedback received following both sessions was excellent, with many already progressing their applications to join Lodges in the Province.

A further digital marketing campaign will kick off soon. Look out for updates on similar events that are being planned now.

Mentoring

As we are now back from our summer recess, I hope you all continue to enjoy your Freemasonry and see Mentoring within it as key principal for ensuring candidates and all Brothers have a fulfilling journey throughout.

Did you know that each Lodge and Chapter has an Area Mentor? A dedicated and experienced Freemason who provides assistance and support to them. I asked Robert Dash, Area Mentor at Sunderland Burdon Road:

What does it mean to you to be an Area Mentor?

When asked to be an area mentor I was surprised and intrigued as to “Why me”?

It was probably because I had developed an Introduction and Explanation Booklet for initiates as I am mentor for my own lodge, The Sunderland Lodge No. 4114.

I am enthusiastic about mentoring, having been a university lecturer and mentor for students and I see this this as a continuation of that role. It is a chance to promote the Craft and Royal Arch and at the same time provide an exciting and interesting journey for candidates.

It is important that all new initiates feel welcomed and understand the processes and procedures of the organisation they have joined. Being an Area Mentor gives me the opportunity to pass on my passions, not only to candidates, but also to lodge mentors by way of support and assistance if required. It also gives me the chance to contact new initiates and introduce myself and the province to them.

Mentoring is an art and a challenge. It demands a dedication, understanding of how people react to new situations and how to approach this with a mentoring method that suits them.

Being an Area Mentor is a privilege and one I hope to continue advancing Freemasonry in the Province of Durham.
