Become a WA Freemason

handshake1So….You’re Interested in becoming a Freemason?

Freemasonry is a multi-racial and multi-cultural organisation. Membership is open to men of all faiths who are 18 years and above; law-abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in a Supreme Being.

You don’t have to wait to be invited or have a family history in Freemasonry – all you need to do is submit our form and a representative of the Grand Lodge of Western Australia will contact you to answer your questions and discuss the next steps. Membership is entirely voluntary.

Why join?

Different individuals get different things out of their membership and being part of our Fraternity. This includes:

  • The opportunity to meet outstanding individuals from all walks of life, many generations, and a range of backgrounds – people you may not otherwise have the opportunity to know and to call brother
  • Being part of a group that provides its members with self development opportunities including public speaking, leadership, training and experience
  • The opportunity to meet with established members of the community and to become a part of, and active contributor to, the community. Visit the News section of this site for more information on the range of community initiatives supported by the Grand Lodge of Western Australia
  • The chance to learn about and contribute to, the history of one of the world’s oldest and largest Fraternal organisations
  • Being part of a group where you can seek support as well as give it
  • The opportunity for you to be involved in a range of social activities. Lodge social occasions are frequently open to the public and include film nights, dinners, trivia, BBQ’s and Ladies Nights.
  • It is important to note that joining Freemasonry will require a personal commitment of time. Each Lodge meets formally once per month, and informally once per month. All members of the Lodge are expected to attend the formal regular monthly meeting.

    It is also important to note that the purpose of Freemasonry is moral and spiritual improvement, not the gaining of any material advantage. Freemasonry is not a benefit society, nor a secret society.

    Freemasonry is a non religious organisation that welcomes members of all faiths. In light of this, do you feel you will be able to accommodate Freemasonry within the framework of your personal beliefs?

    Would you feel comfortable taking an oath on The Bible or another holy book as may be appropriate to your beliefs?

    Freemasonry is centered on maintaining high ethical and moral standards as well as the values of integrity, goodwill and charity. Are you confident that you can strive to meet these standards and uphold these values?

    As our traditions and teachings are based on the practise of social and moral standards, we will need to ask some personal questions regarding any past activity that may have led to a civil or criminal conviction. Given this, would you be happy to discuss if you have ever been convicted of a felony or serious crime?

    Whilst Freemasonry offers its member much in the way of camaraderie, personal development, community involvement and tradition, membership, do you understand that membership will not result in material or financial gain?

    Do you understand that Freemasonry is a non political, law abiding organisation and as such you may be required to toast the Head of State or the Queen?

    Freemasonry strongly supports the belief that family comes first, work comes second and Freemasonry comes third. There is scope for as little or as much involvement in Freemasonry as each individual member chooses to have. Lodges meet from as little as five times a year through to once a month, with members looking to become even more involved though visitation and the ability to join as many lodges as time and finances will allow.

    Do you understand that there is both a time and financial commitment for membership, namely attending lodge meetings and paying the respective fees of your chosen lodge in a timely manner?

    Do you have the support of your family in applying to join Freemasonry?
