Working the Steps in CoDA: exploring different sponsorship approaches.
In need of service
We need people to:
– prepare the script
– be host, co-host,
– give chairs
Without support, we will have to rely on US teams, who have just started running Sponsorship workshops
CoDA UK Sponsorship Committee will host a Zoom Sponsorship workshop
Sunday 16th July 2023, 4-6pm UK time (8-10am Pacific time) (doors open half an hour before)
- Are you looking for a sponsor?
- Are you wondering if you’re ready to be a sponsor?
- Are you looking for new sponsees?
This workshop will have shares on being a sponsor, sponsee and co-sponsoring. It is an introduction to the various ways of sponsorship, 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 and joining WhatsApp groups (see below).
This event will be limited to the first 100 people who log-in. No registration is needed.
These workshops have not to date exceeded the maximum number of participants, so you should be able to join easily. The link below will be valid on the day.
The meeting will open at 3.30 for a 4.00 start.
- 4.00 – Start all the readings
- 4:15 – Shares on being a sponsor/co-sponsor (2 shares), Shares on being a sponsee (2 shares)
- 4:55 – 5.05 – 10 minute comfort break.
- 5.05 – Sharing time
- 5.55 – Close of workshop
- 6.00 – Open for discussion, outreach offers, requests & questions till 6.30
To make the most of this interactive workshop we suggest that you join using a laptop, desktop or tablet device with your video on so we can all see each other, see the readings and have access to the chat box.
Please remember you can save the materials in the chat box by clicking on the three dots to the right at the bottom of chat. Choose “save chat”. Text document saved in your documents folder. Separate folder called Zoom.
