Recognition of other Orders

The Grand Lodge of Freemasonry for Men and Women recognises all Regular and Warranted Orders of Masonry where the requirement exists to all members to hold, the essential belief in a Supreme Being. The Grand Lodge does not recognise Obediences and Orders of Freemasonry where options have been given to forgo this essential Belief.

With that belief goes the important Landmark of the Volume of the Sacred Law (or Lore) placed within the Lodge at every Lodge Meeting. The V.S.L. will be the Christian Bible, the Jewish Torah, the Koran, the sacred writing of the Hindus and other world religions.  We do not accept fraternal relationships or members who state that their V.S.L. is a White Book – a book with blank pages.

Established fraternal links exist with,

None of the above Orders are connected in any way  to the Order 'Le Droit Humain'  called International Co-Freemasonry (Le Droit Humain), lately styling themselves as ‘Freemasonry for Men and Women’. One main distinction is that they (Le Droit Humain) do not require the landmark belief in a supreme being whereas we do. We hold that a spiritual life belief (faith) in a supreme being is fundamental to all life.
