The Jericho Community Association (JCA) is a charitable incorporated organization with a committee of trustees who are elected each year by full members at the annual general meeting.

Membership of the JCA is free, and anyone can apply to join. Full voting members, however, have to live in Jericho. Jericho is defined by the land bounded on the west by the east bank of Castle Mill Stream, on the north by Walton Well Road, on the east by Walton Street and on the south by Hythe Bridge Street, the boundary being formed by the middle of the roads. There are three main types of membership:

  1. Full member – Persons living within Jericho. Full voting rights at a general meeting
  2. Junior member – Person under 18 year living in Jericho. No voting rights
  3. Associate member – Person living outside Jericho. Very welcome to join, or become a trustee but no AGM voting rights

Application for membership There is no charge for membership. Application may be made in the following ways:

  • Here, on the Jericho Online website
  • By completed membership form available in the Community Centre, handed to JCA staff or trustee, or mailed to JCA, 33a Canal Street, Oxford OX2 6BQ

Duration of membership Membership will last for three years Members will be reminded two months before their membership expires and will be invited to renew. If they fail to respond, the membership will automatically expire. For further information, please see: JCA Membership Management Policy JCA Constitution

What kind of households we have?

According the to 2011 Census, almost half of Jericho households – 46% – consisted of only one person, 24% consisted of couples with or without children, 7% were student households, and 11% were other multi-person households, while 6% were single-parent households.

Where the name Jericho comes from?

The name Jericho is probably taken from the parable of the Good Samaritan. Traditionally the name was given to places where travellers who arrived after the town gates had closed at sunset could find lodgings overnight.
