Freemasonry teaches moral lessons and self-knowledge through participation in a progression of allegorical two-part plays, which can be learnt by heart and performed within each lodge.
Freemasonry offers its members an approach to life which seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but importantly Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and helps those in need.
Membership is open to men, aged 21 and over, of all faiths who are law abiding, of good character and who acknowledge a belief in God. Freemasonry is not a religion. It has no theology and does not teach any route to salvation. Freemasonry is multiracial and multicultural organisation. It has attracted men of goodwill from all sectors of the community into membership.
