JERICHO COMMUNITY CENTRE

Jericho Community Centre

A hive of activity in the heart of Oxford

The Jericho St. Barnabas Community Centre serves the residential district of Jericho in the heart of Oxford.

Jericho Community Centre

The Centre, which is on the corner of Canal Street and Cardigan Street, hosts many local activities, including babies and toddlers club and a Saturday Community Cafe — as well as numerous classes from ballet to Thai boxing to pre-natal. The Centre is run by the Jericho Community Association which raises income for the Centre by letting out office space and also several large rooms - ideal for meetings and family parties.

The Cafe at the Community Centre offers delicious food on Saturday mornings.

What kind of households we have?

Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city

Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.
