Join us

Interested in joining?

Freemasonry is open to men over the age of 18, regardless of ethnicity, political views, economic standing, or religious beliefs.

Here in the Province of Durham we have over 4,000 members meeting at over 30 Masonic Halls

In the past membership was gained by being proposed by a friend or family member and that is largely still the case. The saying “To become one, ask one” still applies. There are however many men who are interested in joining but who don’t necessarily have a friend or family member who is already a Mason.

At the bottom of this page is a contact form for you to register your interest. Once completed a member of our team will contact you.

Following the initial contact, we will arrange for representatives from a local Lodge to meet you informally or to invite you to one of their social functions. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and decide if Freemasonry is for you. At no time will we attempt to persuade you to join. It will be up to you to decide in your own time.

Please complete a few details below and a representative from our membership team will contact you
