Joining

Thinking of joining? There is more information at – UGLE

Temple Lodge welcomes membership enquiries and extends the “Masonic Hand of Friendship” to all new members. If after visiting our website, and we suggest that of the United Grand Lodge of England and the Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire, and you are still interested in becoming a Freemason, we would advise you first talk to a family member, friend or work colleague whom you already know to be a Freemason or better still a member of Temple Lodge. They will be able to explain to you what they can about the fraternity and the process to follow.

If you don’t know any of the foregoing, then get in touch with us. You will need to explain a little bit about yourself and your reasons for wishing to join Masonry and more specifically Temple Lodge

We will then make arrangements to meet you, maybe socially, to find out more about you, and to give you a chance to find out more about us.

You would then, in due course, be invited to meet a committee of members from the Lodge prior to being balloted for membership into Temple Lodge.

All being well, a date would then be fixed for your admission.
