Are you struggling with an addiction or compulsive behaviour that is spoiling your life?


The Recovery Course is a free, 15 session Christian programme for adults based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. It provides practical insight and support to help both men and women on the path to freedom from the grip of addiction.

Who is it for?

It is open to anyone struggling with any sort of addiction or any compulsive behaviour, including drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex, gambling and self-harming.

The Recovery Course is a good starter for those completely new to recovery as well as those who have been in recovery for years, but who would like to take a fresh look at the steps from a Christian perspective.

What happens?

Each session includes refreshments, talk and conversation – A typical afternoon starts at 1:00pm for Coffee and refreshments, which is then followed by a 15/20-minute talk and then discussion in small groups for around an hour.

Each week there is some simple ‘Coursework’ that helps everyone attending to explore each of the 12 steps in a deeper way. Nobody has to do the ‘Coursework’, but those who throw themselves into this are the ones who profit the most. The Coursework is entirely for the benefit of the guest’s and no one else gets to see it; it is completely private.
