It is a lovely old house with views of the sea and the hills. The grounds are full of trees, colourful shrubs and flowers. There is also a walled vegetable garden, a labyrinth and many other hidden treasures.

NODDFA is a Welsh word meaning ‘haven’ or ‘refuge’. A place of peace and welcome, a place where you can regain energy. This is the venue we have again chosen for our Retreat and we hope it will be a time for you to relax and recharge while taking time to be self-aware.

During your stay it is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.

Please speak with either Sister Patrice or Sister Mary-Jo to book and pay for your place at Noddfa mentioning the January 2022 Coda Mixed Retreat.

Join us online/by phone to discuss national CoDA business and share news from your groups. Group Service Representatives (GSRs) are able to vote on any motions proposed. 

The meeting will follow the successful recent format of 10 minutes per agenda item, with 30 second shares from each member before a vote is taken, if one is required. Please note that there may not be enough time in the meeting to go through any written reports in detail so we ask all members to come prepared, having read the reports and agenda items in advance, so that we have time for questions, and sharing and reflection during each agenda item.

If your group or region has an item of business you would like to bring to this meeting, you would like to nominate yourself for a service role, or you’re a member in service who is providing a report to the meeting, please download and complete this form, and email it to secretary@codauk.org by Friday 29th October, to enable the Chair and Secretary to put together the agenda and circulate it in advance of the meeting.

The total of the votes is based on how many people are in the meeting and eligible to vote. Abstentions are made as members don’t have the confidence to make a yes or no decision
so need to be accounted for.

30th Oct – North Region Intergroup ‘Home Group Workshop’

Saturday 30th October 2021

1.45pm for 2pm until 5pm on Zoom

CoDA UK’s North Region Intergroup is trying something new for our next quarterly meeting.

A CoDA member said that a healthy regional group is a “Home Group for Home Groups“.

We would like to explore this concept together in Fellowship.

The meeting is open to all members, including Group Service Representatives (GSRs) and newcomers alike. We are inviting CoDA members from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland and the North of England and Midlands to join us for an afternoon of fellowship and sharing online on Zoom.

We can raise any concerns, problems or questions from our Home Group, or individually, to share with each other about our experiences of attending a CoDA meeting, Step Groups, Sponsoring/looking for a Sponsor and especially sharing our experiences during the disruptions of the past many months at these most difficult of times.

In this Workshop we can find new opportunities to broaden our Recovery in the Fellowship of CoDA. We can bring news and views from our local meetings that are important to us, where we will be heard in an atmosphere of love, friendship and fellowship and where it will be a safe space to hear or share our Experience, Strength and Hope of CoDA Recovery.

We will be using breakout rooms during the workshop so we can meet and chat with members from other meetings in smaller groups, and then all come back together as a whole group in order to share all the issues and ideas presented: a melting pot of ideas and initiatives to strengthen our CoDA Fellowship and support each other with our own experience, strength and hope carrying us through to our happy road to recovery from codependency and to encourage inclusivity.

The workshop will be held in a relaxed and informal way, following the CoDA Preamble, Welcome, Steps & Traditions, and other CoDA meeting literature.

Some literature it might be useful for groups and members to read together with their Home groups and have in mind when you attend the workshop are:

Building CoDA Community: Healthy Meetings Matter

Carrying the Message: Living the Twelfth Step

Common Threads of Codependency

Password: 732740



Come and join us in what promises to be an exciting and helpful experience in CoDA Recovery.

All members – newcomers, seasoned CoDA members, GSRs etc – are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you on 30th October!


In gratitude, love, fellowship and service

17th Jul – Fear vs Love (Founders Share)

Global Conversation with Ken & Mary – 14:00 BST

Ken R. and Mary R. founded Co-Dependents Anonymous in 1986. Today, they specialize in helping people achieve their maximum effectiveness by applying the practices and principles of CoDA’s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

The Q&A (question and answer period) will provide a question from each language to be asked on a first come first serve basis. There will be a round robin of one question per language. Submit your question to your Interpreter who will submit the translation to Events. English speaking attendees can give their question to Events directly. There will be further instructions in the morning to help connect to the Interpretation channels, and more.  

For safety, registration is a 2-Step process with Eventbrite and then with Zoom. Please expect a Zoom Invitation to REGISTER A SECOND TIME before the event. COMPLETE the ZOOM REGISTRTIO and the Zoom Webinar link to the Global Conversation with Ken & Mary will be sent to your email before 17th July.

NOTE:

Updating your Zoom App is recommended and possible with this link:  https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting

Translation will be available in Farsi, French, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Portuguese.

This World Event will have 9 languages being interpreted in a consecutive style which means the presenter will speak then pause (meaning the English room will be silent) to give time for the Interpreters to convey their message in the Zoom interpretation channels. This speak and pause method will occur for the duration of their talks and the Q&A.

20th Mar – NSC Additional Meeting

Time: 12:50pm for 1pm-5pm

As agreed at the Group Inventory on 6th February, CoDA UK is holding an additional meeting to complete outstanding business from the last year or so. This meeting is open to members from all the national meetings and representatives of regional groups. However, business is to be limited to just those items which were not heard or were unresolved at previous meetings, and members proposing those items have been contacted. We will be returning to regular and new business at our next quarterly meeting on 1st May.

Join us online/by phone to discuss national CoDA business. Group Service Representatives (GSRs) are able to vote on any motions proposed, but all members are welcome to attend, not just GSRs.

The draft agenda is being produced by a small group of trusted servants and will be circulated and made available below on Sunday 14th March. The meeting may be shorter than 4 hours if we only receive a few agenda items.

27th Feb – CoDA UK Sponsorship Zoom Workshops 2021

Are you looking for a sponsor?
Are you wondering if you’re ready to be a sponsor?
Are you interested in joining or setting up a step group?

This workshop is not necessarily the place where you will find a sponsor. People will share how they found a sponsor. You have to do your part.

Finding a sponsor is an active process within Recovery
We have to investigate our own route to acquiring a sponsor through attending weekly meetings, doing service in a home group, joining WhatsApp groups (reach out via CoDA Member Networks) and finding a Step Group.

Come along to listen and share your experience strength and hope about being a sponsee, a sponsor or being in a step group.

No Registration required to attend this event. Zoom limit of 100 people

Next dates: 27 February 2021. Future dates to be decided.

Zoom connection details – will be posted to all subscribers

6th Feb – NSC Open Meeting: Group Inventory

1-5pm online, with programmed breaks during the session

At a National Service Committee (NSC) group conscience meeting on 5th December 2020 it was agreed that there would be a Group Inventory meeting conducted as a priority. This is to help us reflect on our service, to carry out our service roles in a healthy way and to share about our experience in service with the wider fellowship. It will take place instead of our quarterly business meeting.

We invite the fellowship to join us for this session of reflection and discussion, and hope that the experience will assist in sharing the message of service and healthy groups with the fellowship. Group inventories can be used for step groups, home groups and service groups, and allow us to focus on how the traditions and our ultimate authority, a loving Higher Power as expressed to our group conscience, guide our work and our daily lives.

The session will end with a period of reflection to determine the way forward for some of the organisational challenges the NSC has been discussing in recent meetings. This will include next steps on how regularly the NSC meets, and confirmation of the next meeting where regular business will resume, including items of business carried over from previous meetings.

If you would like to attend, please email northregion@codauk.org to register for the meeting link, any time before the meeting, stating which group you attend most regularly. Details of how to join, what software platform you will need and more details on how the inventory will be carried out will be circulated the week before the event.

Additional meeting readings and materials

7th tradition donations during the retreat can be made anonymously using the following link:

Donations will be used to cover expenses, subsidise postage for literature during the pandemic and also to provide a donation to the Noddfa Centre.

After our very successful 6th Mixed Retreat at the beginning of this year at Noddfa, we are happy to announce our 7th annual retreat again. Due to the current situation with the pandemic unfortunately we cannot hold the retreat face-to-face at Noddfa in January 2021 but will be doing all we can to bring the spirit of Noddfa to the online retreat.

This is a Codependents Anonymous UK Approved Mixed Retreat. CoDA Traditions are observed, and only CoDA approved literature is available for.

CoDA Website: http://www.codauk.org

The Codependents Anonymous Approved Mixed Retreat will adhere to the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Codependents Anonymous.

Codependents Anonymous is a spiritual program. 12 Step Meetings will be held throughout the weekend and CODA approved Literature will also be available. No outside speakers are involved.

Readings at meetings throughout the weekend will be taken from the following literature:

  • The CoDA big book
  • The codependents anonymous workbook
  • In this moment daily meditation book
  • Common threads of codependency
  • Peeling the onion
  • The twelve-piece relationship toolkit

It may benefit attendees to have this literature available during the retreat.

There will be a social gathering on the Saturday evening – please share your talents with us! (though do be mindful of Tradition 6, i.e. no outside enterprises). All activities are optional.

The retreat will take place online this year, hopefully returning to the wonderful location of Noddfa house in October and next January. Noddfa is home to a small extremely kind and friendly spiritual group of religious Sisters and is a venue used by 12 Step and numerous other groups throughout the year. It is a lovely old house with views of the sea and the hills. The grounds are full of trees, colourful shrubs and flowers. There is also a walled vegetable garden, a labyrinth and many other hidden treasures.

NODDFA is a Welsh word meaning ‘haven’ or ‘refuge’. A place of peace and welcome, a place where you can regain energy. This is the venue we have again chosen for our Retreat and we hope it will be a time for you to relax and recharge while taking time to be self- aware.

It is not compulsory to attend all the meetings if you do not wish to.

As the retreat will be held online this year there will be no charge for accommodation. 7th tradition donations and donations to support the work of Noddfa can be made during the retreat.

Any further CODA queries for the retreat please contact Pete on 07853865040 / petehcoda@outlook.com or Gillian on 07792236888 / gilliancoda@gmail.com.

1st May 2021 – NSC Quarterly meeting

Time: 12:50 for 13.00-17:00

CoDA UK is holding its quarterly business meeting which is open to members from all the national meetings and representatives of regional groups.

Join us online/by phone to discuss national CoDA business and share news from your groups. Group Service Representatives (GSRs) are able to vote on any motions proposed. 

The meeting will follow the successful recent format of 10 minutes per agenda item, with 30 second shares from each member before a vote is taken, if one is required. Please note that there is not enough time in the meeting to go through the written reports in detail so we ask all members to come prepared, having read the reports and agenda items in advance, so that we have time for questions in section 5, and sharing and reflection during each agenda item.

One paper will follow during the week and this will be added below.

We ask members to consider agenda item 3 to see if they can offer service at this meeting – as our previous secretary has now finished her role, we will need someone to take notes.
