The City Contact Centre is a place in the city where people who think they have a problem with alcohol can come and find out about Alcoholics Anonymous. Anyone can come in and have a cup of coffee and chat about what AA is and whether it can help.
As well, the centre is a place where members of Alcoholics Anonymous can meet with each other over a cup of coffee in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere and share their experience, strength and hope.
The venue is also available for AA Groups to hold regular meetings. A
variety of AA meetings are held at the venue at various times. A meeting
schedule is available at the centre.
Each of the groups running meetings is an autonomous self supporting Group of AA with its own group conscience.
The day to day running of the Centre is handled by the City Group of AA. This group is an autonomous group just like any other AA group. It is made up of AA members trying to carry the AA message to other Alcoholics. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. The centre is opened and run each day by a roster of experienced AA volunteers.
The City Group is not affiliated with any outside organization. We are self-supporting, declining outside contributions; and we are non-professional, offering only the voluntary support of one alcoholic helping another.
