Aims

Freemasonry has many aims

We are dedicated to making good men better and to developing our knowledge of ourselves as individuals and the world around us through education, discussion and social exchange
We aim to make proper use of our time, dividing it between worship, work, leisure and service, thus making the best use of our mental and physical abilities
We aim to use our talents for the benefit of ourselves, our families, our neighbours and our communities throughout our private, public business and professional life
We declare our membership whenever any possible conflict of interest may arise or be perceived to arise
We promise not to use our membership to promote our own or anyone else’s private, public business or professional interests

The Highest Moral and Social Standards

We aim to behave towards others as we would have them behave towards us
We aim to be constructive in our approach to life and uphold the importance of the welfare and independence of everyone

Friendship

We admit members from every ethnic group in the world
We believe that all individuals are equal and dependant on each other. That they must be valued for their own merits regardless of factors such as race, national origin, religious creed, social status or wealth
We respect the ideals and beliefs of others and endeavour to behave with kindness and understanding to all
We cherish all life and the well being of all

Charity

We consider charity as being goodwill to all
We care not only for Masons and their families, but also for the community as a whole
We raise money for charitable purposes only from our own members, not from the general public
We give as generously as our wealth will allow and through voluntary work in the community
Not only do we donate to local charities and good causes but also to medical research and need both locally and on a National scale
Integrity

We strive for truth and believe that nothing can justify the telling of lies or being untrustworthy
We treat everyone in an open and honest manner
