AA SOUTH EAST REGION Workshops Sunday 24th September 2017

“AA Service is anything whatever that legitimately helps us to reach fellow sufferers… carrying the message is the basic service that our Fellowship gives; it is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. AA is more than a set of principles; it is a society of recovered alcoholics in action. We must carry AA’s message; otherwise we ourselves may fall into decay and those who have not yet been given the truth may die
