Fraternity

Over 76 Lodges In Derbyshire.

All have a mixed membership of men from all walks of life and differing backgrounds, all meeting as friends and Brothers.

All members are “Brothers” irrespective of race, religion, social status or background and we meet as equals.

For Freemasons, there are four important values that help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity. In today’s world filled with uncertainty, these principles ring as true as they have at any point in the organisation’s history.

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 learnt by heart and 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.

The Royal Arch is the final part of the journey begun with Initiation, and together with the three degrees of the Craft forms “pure Antient Masonry”.

Master Masons are eligable for joining the Royal Arch four weeks after taking their third degree.
