Based on the south coast of England, Pete lives with his wife Nicola and two daughters, Olivia and Summer. They moved to the seaside town of Eastbourne in June 2014 after living in Sheffield for over 12 years. It was in Sheffield that Pete served as Worship Director for St Thomas Church Philadelphia, and Nicola launched her company (www.nicola-james.com). Pete and his family attend Kings Church in Eastbourne where he serves as Worship Pastor for their three sites. Alongside this role he dedicates his time to songwriting, coaching and leading worship across the UK and abroad. Events he has played at include New Wine, Spring Harvest, Creation Fest, Big Church Day Out and Mission Worship. His role in the local church, combined with periods of touring, has given Pete expertise in establishing a thriving worship culture within churches. He frequently passes on his experiences through coaching days and seminars. He and his family have made their home where two worlds converge; the world of rolling hills, sea views and holidaymakers, and the world of the poor, homeless and addicted.

“I have been coming to the conference for a number of years and this was the best one yet !!!”
“The conference is always a wonderful time of learning from God, experiencing Him working in my life and seeing Him clearly at work in others. It always brings challenge, inspiration, information and fellowship and is a really lovely refreshing time where God always speaks and I am able to hear Him.”
Nearly 350 people gathered at The Hayes Conference Centre for the annual Fresh Streams Conference. There was worship, led by Pete James. A DIGGING DEEPER session gave people the opportunity to talk through one of 23 issues in depth in a very small group; and FINDING SPACE was time carved out of the programme to allow people to spend time alone, focusing on the presence of God.
One special feature was the attendance by leadership team groups: there was an offer for them to receive prophetic prayer as a group.
