Helping New Freemasons Find Their Feet

In Derbyshire, we are very fortunate to have many vibrant lodges, holding regular initiation ceremonies. One of the primary aims of the Porchway Club is to help a newly made Freemason navigate their way through the first three degrees. The club  are there to support you and help you grow your masonic circle of friends by way of regular social events and visits to other lodges.

About The Porchway Club

The Porchway Club in Derbyshire was founded in 2018 to provide young & newly initiated Freemasons within the province of Derbyshire a means to socialise and meet with like-minded people of a similar age.

Membership of The Porchway Club is open to all young and new Freemasons who have not yet been installed as a Worshipful Master, whose Craft Lodge falls within Derbyshire and under the Provincial Grand Lodge of Derbyshire.

Membership of The Porchway Club is FREE, however there may be a small charge for certain events organised by the club.

Club Membership

Our members come from all across the province of Derbyshire, many are new to Freemasonry. When becoming a Mason it is common that your masonic circle of friends is small, you may not know anybody in your lodge! The Porchway Club is here to support you through your initial steps in joining, through to becoming the master of your own lodge, we have all been in your shoes and know that joining an organisation and not knowing many people can be quite daunting. We regularly visit each others’ lodges, we are there to support new candidates on their initiation night, we hold regular social events whether that is a quiet drink, a club meal or through other leisure activities.

Social Events

Being a Mason isn’t just about ritual and dinners; it’s about becoming the best version of you, and leaving a positive impact on the world. In Freemasonry, you get out what you put in. Being an active member socially is just as important as paying your dues, performing splendid ritual or contributing funds to the charity steward’s purse. 

The Porchway Club exists to celebrate and encourage the feeling of camaraderie and the sense of brotherhood. This feeling, I’m sure you’ll agree in time, extends far beyond the temple and festive board, and forms part of our daily lives.
