Moonee Ponds Big Book Group
Alcoholics Anonymous Moonee Ponds Big Book Group meets at the Moonee Ponds
Court House, Kellaway Avenue Moonee Ponds at 7.30 - 8.30 pm every Tuesday
evening. Each week we read and discuss a chapter from the book "Alcoholics
Anonymous" the official text of the program. We welcome existing members and
also offer a cordial welcome to anybody who would like to know more about this
life saving program. All attending are invited to share their experience,
strength and hope as a member of Alcoholics Anonymous from their personal
lives and on the text relating to the reading of the meeting.
Newcomers are given a special welcome and are invited to talk to a member
after the meeting in order to clarify any issues or questions that they have
about the fellowship and attending on going meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous.
We provide free literature and the offer to assist with the attendance of
further meetings by both male and female members.
Group members are available on request to carry the message of recovery
from active alcoholism to interested groups in the community including
schools, government agencies e.g. police, health and welfare agencies and
community agencies. The 12 th Step of the Alcoholics Anonymous program reads:
" ...having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried
to carry this message to alcoholics and to practise these principles in all
our affairs..."[Alcoholics Anonymous page 60] Consequently as members we have a responsibility to do what we
can to offer the solution to alcoholism to other suffering alcoholics in the
community who may be unaware that there is a solution to their dilemma.
