uring and following the development of Craft Freemasonry, there have been formed many additional Masonic Orders and Organisations. While these other Orders are separate from Craft Freemasonry they almost all require membership of the Craft as a basic qualification for admission, and some have additional membership requirements. Certain of these Orders are related to Craft Freemasonry, and extend the legends and moral lessons introduced in its ceremonies.
Within New Zealand Freemasonry, one of these Orders, known as the Royal Arch
, is, for historical reasons, most closely associated with Craft Freemasonry. Further information on the Royal Arch may be obtained here
