The Recovery Course
Who is it for?
Many have found it a good place to start on recovery – and equally effective for those who have been working on recovery for years but who would like to take a fresh look at the steps from a Christian perspective. While it does offer a Christian perspective it is open and has been of value to people of all faiths and none.
What is the purpose of the course and what is it based on?
The primary purpose of the Recovery Course is to provide practical insight and support to help both men and women on the path to freedom from the grip of addiction. It is based on the 12 Step Programme used for 75 years by Alcoholics Anonymous and many other 12 step programmes, and incorporates teaching and wisdom from the Bible. It has been developed and has been run at Holy Trinity Brompton over the last 10 years by people who are themselves in recovery from addiction.
We also recommend that alongside the Recovery Course, you seek weekly support through groups such as Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous. For local AA groups click HERE.
How is the course structured?
The sessions will last 1h15 and will include a talk on a step and then some time for raised-hand sharing.
At the end of each evening additional material will be made available to help with further personal reflection. These will be photographed and emailed out to be completed during the week. The amount of time you take on this work is up to you.
Where and when will it be held?
The meetings will be hosted on Zoom. You will be given a link to join the meeting once you have registered. The first meeting will be on Monday 26th April at 6.30pm and then will continue weekly until 14th June.
Who is running the course?
The course is hosted/run by St Dionis church with the support of a number of other churches in the area.
It has been organised by a group of men and women from St Dionis, most of whom have experienced and benefited from the Recovery Programme and all are in various stages of recovery from addictions.
What will it cost?
The course is completely free.
