Supreme Grand Chapter Launch ‘Archway’

by Peter Wells

A structured approach for Royal Arch Chapters to shape their future and grow their membership.

Archway is similar to the Members Pathway, but aimed at Royal Arch Chapters rather than Craft Lodges. It offers 4 Arch Stones to help Chapters Shape, Grow, Involve and Enjoy.


Building on the past, looking to the future

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” (George Bernard Shaw)

This section tackles the fundamental question of “How do we shape and plan the future of our Chapter?”

It will help each Chapter review their current situation, identify new opportunities, and spot potential issues before planning to move forward.


Helping more people continue their journey

This section tackles the question “How do we grow our Chapter?”

Building on the plans made within “SHAPE” it addresses how you can create the right environment for growth and promote the Chapter.


Participation is the essence of a good Chapter

This section highlights what can be done to engage all Companions, not only in the ceremonial aspects of their Chapter but the Royal Arch as a whole. This can take many different forms, suiting some more than others. However, it is based on the principle that involved members are active members, who then stay members.


Happy have we met!

This section is linked to many aspects of the previous sections. It has a particular focus on using the results of the review tool at the start of the SHAPE section to maximise each members enjoyment.  ENJOY represents a successful outcome of Archway and of a healthy Chapter. Remember, happy members usually come back and want to remain involved.
