The Many Symptoms, One Solution Overeaters Anonymous Group meets every Monday evening at the Good News Fellowship Church located at 891 St. Mary’s Road, in the large meeting space found on the left as you enter the main doors.
There is convenient parking and the wheelchair accessible building is on a main bus route. There is a popular coffee shop just north of the meeting location for those wanting to bring their own beverage.
The meeting time is from 7:00 to 8:00 pm and the door is unlocked at around 6:40 pm. We usually have from 8 to 12 people in attendance, including recovered members and a few sponsors.
We are currently reading about the Twelve Steps from both the “OA Twelve & Twelve” and the “AA Twelve & Twelve”, alternating between the two books. The first Monday of the month is a “Chair’s Choice” meeting.
If you are a newcomer, you will be warmly welcomed. For your first meeting, we will be following a special meeting format which we hope will help you figure out if OA is right for you and give you hope of recovery. We would love for you to join us.

The meeting is held at Prairie United Church – 207 Thompson Drive in Winnipeg, just off Portage Avenue behind Underdogs restaurant. There is ample parking at night and the door we use to get in faces the parking lot. The room is of ample size for our meeting, is wheelchair accessible and is climate controlled. The group is well represented with an equal amount of men and women on most nights and is always excited when newcomers attend. The group rotates between two Big Book readings, a leader’s choice, and a literature meeting. Our meeting sees approximately 9-14 members on any given night with a good mix of newcomers and long timers, as well as a handful of members sponsoring at any given time.
Please come by and see what our meeting has to offer.
*** ONLINE ONLY ***
The meeting runs from 7 pm-8 pm.
We have a strong core group that has long term recovery. We study the Big Book for two weeks, a step one week, and then a leader’s choice discussion meeting as our 4 week rotation.
If we have a newcomer, we are excited to share our stories and hear what brought them to our meeting, and then spend time answering questions.
Our meeting is a closed meeting, which just means that we would only like to have people who think they may be compulsive with food, or who know they are. It also means if you are joining us on Zoom we need you to say hello and identify yourself for our member’s cyber safety.
Our meeting is a safe place to share openly about your food compulsion(s).

We usually have two-three sponsors available, but also have members who have attended for many years.
We are wheelchair accessible with a ramp outside for access. However, the only washrooms are six steps up or accessible by elevator.
Our meetings are open to all, and we invite you to join us.
Currently, our Sunday meeting does not have a physical location, so our meetings are only accessible via ZOOM. We work through the 12 steps and traditions in order, using the AA Big Book, the OA 12&12 and the AA 12&12 and other OA conference approved literature, as chosen by the meeting leader. Our meeting takes place every Sunday from 11 am-12 noon CT, including all holidays. We have an average of 8-12 people at a meeting with many sponsors and members in recovery.
