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.

The Centre, which is on the corner of Canal Street and Cardigan Street, hosts many local activities, including An Alive and Kicking Club and a Saturday Community Cafe — as well as numerous classes from ballet to Tai Chi to life drawing. 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 not just for classes but for meetings and family parties.

Did you know?

How religious we are?

In the 2001 Census, some 50% of Jericho residents said they were Christian, 2.2% Muslim, 1.9% Buddhist and 1.2% professed other religions, while 34% of people said they had no religion. In Oxford as a whole the proportion with no religion was 24%.

The history of the Phoenix?

There has been a cinema here since 1913. Orginally it the 'North Oxford Kinema', since when it has passed through many hands and names, including the Scala, the New Scala, the Studios 1 and 2, Studio X (a club showing soft porn) and finally in 1977 the Phoenix.
