Becoming a member

For many people, becoming a freemason can seem to be quite a daunting task. Here at St John's Lodge we try to dispel some of the fears and concerns that surround the subject of freemasonry.

Our website has been developed to help potential members gain a better understanding of freemasonry without having to reveal their possible interest in becoming a freemason. Unless you have lived in Torbay for a while it unlikely that you will already know freemasons from the area so the internet is fast becoming a point of contact for new members.

Some people will decide after browsing the website that freemasonry is not for them and they will not take any further action towards becoming a freemason.

Other people will want to know more about freemasonry and St John's Lodge in particular. If you want to know more about becoming a member of St John's Lodge then please take a few minutes to send us an email via the 'Contact Us' option on the top menu. We will contact you and arrange to answer any further questions you may have regarding freemasonry and becoming a member of St John's Lodge No.328

We look forward to hearing from you.
