If you would like to know more about Freemasonry in Guernsey and Alderney,
drop us a line and we’ll contact you.

Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that traces its origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of masons and their interaction with authorities and clients.

The degrees of freemasonry, its gradal system, retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason.

These are the degrees offered by Craft Lodge Freemasonry. There are additional degrees, which masons may choose to progress upon becoming Master Masons.
