Each month when we visit our Lodge or Chapter the evening should be special and memorable, so that we look forward to our next meeting with keen anticipation. That may involve ensuring the company is good, the venue, meal and service are excellent and, as far as the meeting itself is concerned, that we learn something in an enjoyable, dignified and entertaining manner.
There should never be a masonic evening in which the business agenda fails to contain some valued masonic education, a short talk, a paper followed by a debate, some questions and answers etc. The papers and speakers are there to support the work of Mentors or whoever has responsibility for guiding and supporting the new brethren in your Lodge or Chapter.
The Education and Development Materials Subcommittee is responsible for the production of nearly all the material available through these pages and the work of the committee is designed to complement and support to the best of its ability the work of the Provincial Grand Mentor and Provincial Grand Orator. The tables below will show you what is available.
These are available to Chapters to download and to deliver in their own Chapters

From whence it came. Chart illustrations with paper.
I joined Prince Edwin’s Chapter as I was keen to learn about the Royal Arch. I have found the history and tradition of the order absolutely captivating, my exaltation was incredible, so much colour, drama and historical ritual, which has left me feeling utterly privileged to be a part of something very special.
At the age of 28 and just over a month of becoming a master mason, I was exalted into the Royal Arch. That is something I haven’t regretted. Having gone through my craft ceremonies, I felt a piece of the jigsaw was missing, and wanted to complete my final step to becoming a “complete Freemason”.
Chapter has brought with it new experiences, new insights and new Companions, all of which add to our pleasure and enjoyment of Freemasonry.
I planned to pass through the chair before joining Chapter but newly exalted companions from my lodge recommended that I join because it would complete my masonic journey. After 4 years in craft I decided to join chapter and have enjoyed the experience ever since.

As I spent more time in my lodge I was keen to further my Masonic journey. Everyone suggested the Royal Arch to complete the Third Degree. The new appearance of a chapter was a surprise. The story was enlightening and put a new perspective on my Masonic understanding.

I became a member of the Chapter following in the steps of my brother Warren who died at 39. I really enjoy the diversity between the Craft and Royal Arch the banners, candles, and robes etc,. I would recommend all Brethren to join the Royal Arch.
I decided to expand my Masonic knowledge. By joining a chapter where a number of my lodge brethren were members. My Exaltation was a wonderful experience for me being full of colour. I would recommend the Royal Arch to any Master Mason.
