The First Step in Freemasonry
An important part of your application is to put you in contact with a lodge in which there are members with similar background, interests or profession.
This will benefit you greatly as you will be able to get more involved with the lodge and social activities.
We recommend you meet socially with members of a lodge. This gives you the opportunity to get to know the members and to ask questions.
If the lodge is the right fit for you, we can now move onto the process to joining a Masonic Lodge in Jersey.
The process to join the Freemasons:
Each lodge is unique will have its own way of doing things but essentially each follow the same process.
Once you have met with members of the lodge, they will want to find out about you and make sure the lodge is the right choice for you.
Do speak with your family about joining Freemasonry in Jersey. Their support is vitally important.
If you confirm interest in joining, the members of the lodge will invite you to attend for an informal interview and ask you to complete a formal application.
Your membership is subject to a vote by all members of the lodge, and once accepted a date will be set for you to join.
You will be kept informed at each stage during the process.
