Electric vehicle charging

From March 2023, charging at Church House Oxford is provided by OpCharge, working in partnership with local suppliers Evie Chargers and Compleo. Find out more about this groundbreaking partnership, the first in the UK. Please note that you will need the OpCharge app installed on your phone and charging is 32p/Kwh

How to use the chargers

  • Available charge points can be seen in the app
  • Connect your vehicle - plug one end of your charging cable into your vehicle and the other end into the charge point socket.
  • Select the charge point in the app to charge your vehicle. Tap the button labelled “Charge” at the bottom of the charger information pane.
  • Confirm your vehicle and payment card. After your payment card has been processed and communication with the charge point has been established, the charging session should begin (this may take up to a minute to complete).
  • Disconnecting your vehicle terminates the charging session and calculates the fee that will be charged to your payment card. The final fee that will be charged to your payment card should display automatically in the app within a few seconds of disconnecting your vehicle.
