PLEASE ENSURE YOU ARE RUNNING THE LATEST VERSION OF ZOOM. THE SOFTWARE HAS RECENTLY BEEN UPDATED, WHICH HAS BEEN CAUSING SOME USERS ISSUES WHEN TRYING TO LOG IN TO MEETINGS, USING THE OLDER VERSION. 

GSO UPDATE regarding returning to physical meetings - 30th June 2020

GSO have provided a number of suggestions and points to consider as the lockdown rules are further relaxed, to be read on their news page.

AA Service News: Summer Edition - 22nd May 2020

Download here

  • Lastest Update from our General Service Office here

Including: 

In order to help members at this time, the teams working on Share and Roundabout magazines have asked that all the earlier issues from 2020 should be shared with the whole of the Fellowship.

If you would like to contribute something to them, please consider taking out a subscription, or simply make a donation (members of the Fellowship only) to help maintain services from GSO. Details can be found here

AA Service News 

PI Service News, April 2020: A guide has been put together by members of the Fellowship to help people make the most of Zoom, protect individual anonymity, and prevent the meeting from being hijacked. Download here

Call for stories: The coronavirus pandemic is affecting everyone, including those of us in Alcoholics Anonymous. How has your group or intergroup or region met the challenge to continue carrying the message to the alcoholic who still suffers in this difficult time? 


AA Service News welcomes reports and articles on this topic from members, groups, intergroups and regions for publication in the Summer 2020 edition. Please send to: editor.aasn@aamail.org

Deadline: All articles and reports MUST be received no later than April 24th.

Click here for some guidance on registering Online Meetings with us.



"A further word of warning: there are a few websites around claiming to offer AA Online Meetings but have no connection with Alcoholics Anonymous. Some may be genuine, but others may charge fees, while others will require you to download their software, which may contain malware. We strongly recommend that you avoid all of them and join an existing group (above) or create your own online meeting."

  • If your meeting has closed, please inform GSO, so that AA members from other areas can know what is happening in our area (and again when it re-opens)
  • A number of online meetings have been set up by members of our Intergroup. A list of all available meetings can be downloaded here in PDF format.
  • For help, information, or to join a meeting, email vice-chair.tynen@aamail.org
    These meetings are not yet registered with GSO, some general information about online meetings can be found here. There has also been some extremely helpful first-hand experience and suggestions offered by another fellowship. Please be sure to remain safe when online
    • Some groups are continuing their meetings on temporary online direct replacement meetings - see list of cancellations below
    • If you have set up a new online meeting, you can register it with GSO by email at groupinformation@gsogb.org.uk
  • The telephone service is in need of 12th Steppers who are willing to 'befriend' newcomers while it's not as easy to get them to meetings, please email secretary.tynen@aamail.org with the subject heading "Carrying the Message" for more information
  • To ensure the helping hand of AA continues to be there for the still suffering alcoholic with projects like the AA helpline, chat now and text services, prison visits, this website and other 12th Step work, please remember our 7th Tradition. 

  • With meetings more or less completely confined to online resources for the time being, please remember that although online meetings require a fraction of the cost of renting a venue per month, continued donations would very much help maintain the fellowship as a self-sustaining entity. 
     
       TYNE & NORTHUMBRIA  AA Intergroup Bank Account is as follows:
