What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is based on three principals – Brotherly love, relief and truth.Freemasonry - what's it all about

Freemasonry dates back to the 17th Century and now exists in many forms all over the world.

In the UK there are over 250,000 Masons and over 6 Million around the globe.

Here in the UK Freemasonry is governed by the United Grand Lodge of England and closer to home in Surrey, Purley Masonic Lodge is under the jurisdiction of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Surrey.

At the heart of all that we do is charity. Donations are made from three levels – United Grand Lodge of England, London and Provinces and private individual Lodges.

Donations are regularly made to Masonic charities for Brethren in distress or to assist widows and families.

Non-Masonic organizations also benefit greatly from the generosity of Freemasons.
