Gordon Bourne Lodge No.9388 (Staines, Middlesex)

Request to Join

First of all, our fraternity has a wonderful history, which dates back more than three centuries. It is one of the world's oldest secular fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences. 

People might think that to become a Freemason is quite difficult. It's actually straightforward. The essential qualifications for admission is that you have a belief in a Supreme Being . . . we'll explain more when you get in touch.

It is usual for candidates to be "mature men of 21 years and over", but in some circumstances candidates between the ages of 18 and 21 can be admitted.

Most Lodges meet on one evening a month for between four and eight months of the year.  Regular attendance is encouraged, and as a Mason begins to gain experience he will be invited to attend a Lodge of Instruction, usually held on a separate evening. Lodge fees vary, but usually consist of an annual subscription (about £100 a year) and a dining fee (about £20 per meal) for the majority of members who attend both parts of the meeting.

In return for all the above, the newly-made Mason will enjoy the fellowship of his Lodge, which is just a small part of a world-wide Brotherhood.  He will meet with like-minded friends, maintain the centuries-old traditions of Freemasonry, help to raise money for charity (and in times of need may benefit from it likewise) and (as most Masons discover) learn a great deal about himself as well!
