Jericho, positioned next to Oxford’s canals and port meadow, is a place where the academic intersects with the spiritual, where the intellect blends in with the heart. It represents the often lonely and singular experience of learning with that which was much more communal and creative. In Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials, a trilogy of fantasy novels, Jericho is the place where the gypsies live. Located almost in the centre of Oxford, it is the neighborhood where you can find wild horses and houses painted in a myriad of colours, all built very close to each other.
At its centre, Jericho brings together: Learning. Intellect. Mind. Body. Spirit. Community. Home. Creativity. The freedom to think. Life in colour. Our fellowship, is inbued with this spirit and intention.
