Regular Activities at the Community Centre

There is so much to learn, practise, do, teach, reflect upon.

The following activities are all coordinated by people who hire space at the Community Centre.

Please contact the activity coordinator directly for activity details, times and costs.

At monthly meetings the group writes letters to politicians, councillors and persons in positions of power locally and overseas, in support of persons who are possibly imprisoned and/or mistreated for various reasons, many times due to simply having an opinion. We organise and run fundraising events and campaign for human rights. New members are always welcome.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.

Going to an AA meeting is simple. You can find where and when there is a meeting convenient for you and you just turn up. That’s it. There’s no signing in, no money to pay, no appointment to make. There are no intrusive questions, no obligations. Your privacy and anonymity will be respected. You’ll never be met with a demand to come back to any meeting or indeed to AA. You can go to different meetings as often or as little as you wish.

Many of us had no idea what to expect of our first meeting. For some of us the idea was quite scary, so we were greatly relieved to find that our fears were groundless. AA meetings are relaxed, friendly and open.
