Values – The Way We Do Things
Berkshire Freemasons are guided by four important principles that help define our path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity.
Integrity: Building Good People
Berkshire Freemasons are focused on building themselves as people of integrity and Membership provides the structure to help achieve that goal.
Friendship – Building Together
Berkshire Freemasonry welcomes people from all religions and political persuasions, and provides the common foundation for friendships between Members, many of which will last for life.
Respect: Building Unity
Berkshire Freemasonry brings people together, irrespective of their race, religion or any other perceived differences that can divide us as a society.
Charity: Building Compassion
Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Berkshire Freemasonry. The organisation provides a support structure that helps Members make positive contributions to communities and worthwhile causes through fundraising events or volunteer work.
The fifth principle important to Berkshire Freemasonry is:
Fun: Building Enjoyment
Enjoyment, entertainment, good humour and a supportive environment to reflect the way in which we work and relax together.
