JERICHO COMMUNITY CENTRE
The Jericho St. Barnabas Community Centre serves the residential district of Jericho in the heart of Oxford.
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 Tai Chi 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.
