Every year at the St Margaret’s Institute on Polstead Road in Oxford. The fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous host a day long Christmas gathering on Sunday and host at least three meetings.
There is a meeting at 1000, a meeting at 1300 and another at 1600. People gather to celebrate Christmas and it ensures that people do not have to be alone on Christmas day. Traditionally people have come along to help set up on Christmas morning. Some people just pop in and give some goodies. Others stay and share some of the day before going onto to share Christmas with their families. Some others come after their families Christmas celebrations and drop in for a couple of hours. However you wish to spend the day please feel free to come and celebrate your sobriety and Christmas with us.
This year as Christmas falls on a Monday, the Monday Lunchtime Headington meeting and Monday Night Oxford meeting are the lead hosts in ensuring a warm welcome to one and all. All the groups in Oxford and surrounding areas also support the day by sending contributions if your group wants to contribute you can give the money to the GSRs of the organsing groups, to Pauline (Monday lunchtime Headington), Julia (Monday night Oxford) or Penny (SMIG Chair) or directly into the SMIG bank account. If your group donates into the SMIG bank account please put a reference on it.
So if you need a meeting or just want to celebrate a Christmas in sobriety please come and join us. There will be a meeting at 10am, 1pm and 4pm. The venue will aim to open around 9am and will probably shut at 7.30 pm.
If you would like to help out or want to bring something to share then feel free to turn up or just contact the GSRs mentioned above or us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The gathering will take place at:
