OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

What Is Freemasonry About?

Integrity-01-01.png
Integrity
building good people

Rather than working on buildings like the masons of old, today’s Freemasons focus on building themselves as people of integrity, and membership provides the structure to help achieve that goal.

Friendship-01-01.png
Friendship
building together

One of the oldest social organisations in the world, Freemasonry is not defined by an ideology. It is open to people from all religions and political persuasions and provides the common foundation for friendships between members, many of which will last for life.

Respect-01-01.png
Respect
building unity

With a membership of more than 200,000 people drawn from communities across the UK, Freemasonry brings people together irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.

Charity-01-01.png
Service
serving the community

Whether participating in events, fundraising for a charitable cause or volunteering for public or community organisations, service is at the very heart of Freemasonry. Our members make valuable contributions by donating time, resources and skills.

Freemasonry in Derbyshire

Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join.

For some, it’s about making lifelong friends and acquaintances who have similar values. For others, it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. For many, it is an enjoyable hobby but at the same time much more – Freemasonry helps members become better citizens and live life to a high moral code.

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. 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 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 concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.
