Pete Greig


Pete Greig is the bewildered founder of 24-7Prayer, an international, interdenominational movement of prayer, mission and justice which has been praying night-and-day for more than twenty years, and has reached more than half the nations on earth. He and his wife Sammy serve as Senior Pastors of Emmaus Rd, a church with congregations in Guildford, Woking and Aldershot, England, and split their time between a barge on the River Wey and an island off the coast.

Pete is an Ambassador for the NGO Tearfund, an Associate Tutor at St Mellitus Theological College, and a member of The Order of the Mustard Seed. He co-hosts Wildfires and The Big Church Day Out, the UK’s largest Christian festival.

For eight years Pete was the Director of Prayer for Alpha International and HTB, a large Anglican church in London, although he himself is ordained in the Free Church tradition.

Pete contributes to the Lectio365 daily devotional. His books include Red Moon RisingGod on MuteHow to Pray, and his new release How To Hear God: A Simple Guide For Normal People. His memoir Dirty Glory won UK Christian Book of the Year, 2017. The Prayer Course has been downloaded more than a million times.

Proud dad to two adult sons, Pete loves art galleries, Portsmouth FC, and messing about on the river.
