Freemasons New Zealand
Mission Statement: To be a modern organisation retaining our traditions of Fellowship with like minded men, Integrity and Charitable work. Freemasonry: A Way of Life.
Freemasonry is unique. It cannot be likened to any Institution in that it offers experiences not found anywhere else.
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal societies. There are approximately five million Freemasons worldwide and 6050 Freemasons in New Zealand with 219 Lodges.
Freemasons are ordinary men in the community, 21 years and over (18 from 1st November 2018), of all religions and backgrounds, who share a concern for human values, moral standards and the rights of individuals.
There are many reasons why a man will choose to be a Freemason.
It is an organisation that promotes self-development, family and community values. It provides men with an opportunity for public service and hands-on involvement in charitable and community issues, as well as a chance to socialise with men from all walks of life.
