Micha & Jayne

Micha and Jayne Jazz run St Cuthbert’s Oratory in North Baddesley, Southampton, Hampshire. It is our home of prayer. Here we explore and practice the life of faith rooted in everyday life. We bring the contemplative and the charismatic together.

St Cuthbert’s Oratory: A Home of Prayer

St Cuthbert’s Oratory invites and supports individuals and groups to make sense of faith in contemporary life. We explore God encounter and building a simple and practical rhythm of prayer.

This is done within a welcome, hospitable and creative space, where personal growth is encouraged.

Framed within the Christian tradition, the Oratory offers a safe space to explore who we are and want to become; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Micha and Jayne have both experienced disappointment through uninvited and unwelcome life experience. They both have found God’s way to recover and reconfigure their lives following the devastation of a rogue wave. They invite you to journey with them to find God’s presence in and way for your life.

Oratory life.

An Oratory is simply a place for prayer and the service it gives rise to. It not bound to any one tradition nor by a formal rule. Its members choose how best they can commit to regular prayer and share meals together. All members are self supporting and maintain a healthy connection to the world beyond the Oratory’s walls.

Each Oratory is autonomous, but shares common practices and preserves a common spiritual heritage.

The Ministry

The ministry is built around conversation, reflection, empathy, and self discovery. St Cuthbert’s offers an oasis for refreshment on life’s pilgrimage. Personal development never ends for we can always expect to ‘become‘ more  of who we are throughout our life.

Micha and Jayne offer Spiritual Direction/Accompaniment, retreats, spiritual coaching and seminars in training for living on purpose.


St. Cuthbert’s is a house of learning drawing wisdom and offering encouragement from the writings and reflections of the church from its birth to the present day.

Micha broadcasts ‘Be Still & Know’, a five minute meditation on Premier Radio each weekday. This is also available in print and electronic form at no charge.
