How to avoid Zoom bombing

    Waiting Room is enabled by Zoom from now on.

When the host looks at the screen of participants, above will be those waiting to enter.

Just click on the box to let them in.


  When you lock a Zoom Meeting that’s already started, no new participants can join, even if they have the meeting ID and password (if you have required one). In the meeting, click Participants at the bottom of your Zoom window. In the Participants pop-up, click the button that says Lock Meeting.

 Remove unwanted or disruptive participants: From the Participants menu, you can mouse over a participant’s name, and several options will appear, including Remove. Click that to kick someone out of the meeting.

Cornwall AA are following the experience of London AA and setting up virtual meetings on Zoom. See the link below for their tips

In the light of recent developments, online meetings are being created via ZOOM for various Cornwall based Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, (any AA member outside of Cornwall is welcome to join). Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery using modern technology as physical meeting places become unavailable or unsafe due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Setting up a virtual zoom meeting

If you want to set up a new virtual meeting, or are simply moving a preexisting physical (Cornwall) meeting across to an online format & wish to have it listed on this site so others can access it, please email Jo who will be happy to list it on this site (email to), specifying the following information:

  • Time of the meeting

  • Format of the meeting

  • Relevant ZOOM meeting link which will be added to the below schedule

  • If you need support in setting up a ZOOM meeting, please specify in your email (and detail a contact number) and we will seek to help you with this

Online meeting schedule below

All meetings listed below are detailed in UK local time (GMT)






Cornwall ONLINE Meeting Schedule

(click on meeting hour to open zoom link):

We are new to this, so please be patient and tolerant if things don't go according to plan! Please click on the meeting link below- you can do this at any time to get ready and set up before the meeting, then simply come back 15 minutes before the meeting time to check that everything is working OK :).

Some members have found that it helps to download the Zoom app first, before clicking on the link although others have been led through the process just by clicking on the link below. This link should work for both computers and phones.






AA Preamble
How it Works
12 Traditions
A Vision For You
AA Daily Reflection




ZOOM is a video conferencing service that allows us to hear and see each other, bringing us closer to having a genuine face-to-face meeting. Unfortunately, there can be a bit of a learning curve to using it the first time. Remember:

  1. Click or tap any link above in the schedule to join any one of the AM or PM ZOOM meetings

  2. If you don’t have the zoom app on your phone or your computer you’ll be asked to download it

  3. Tap the meeting link to join

  4. Click or Tap “Join with Video” or “Join Without Video” depending on your preference

  5. Click or Tap “Call using Internet Audio” **VERY IMPORTANT** (otherwise we won’t be able to hear you  )

  6. You’re in! You can mute yourself by tapping the screen, or moving your mouse over the video to see the menu, and tapping the microphone icon that looks like this:






Suggestions for Participants in Virtual Meetings:

  • Suggestion guide for video/phone good meeting practices

  • Everyone should mute their phone unless they want to share, or want to interject a laugh or other non disruptive sound

  • If two people try to share at the same time, the secretary can break the tie if needed.

  • 7th Tradition:   Each group is responsible to manage this with their secretary
