Nancy Goudie heads up the creative and innovative charity ngm. She was born in Ayr, Scotland when at the age of six she had a very powerful and dramatic experience of God. She grew up in a musical family and in her teens was part of a well-established band called Unity. As well as singing with the band she also put her qualifications in speech (ALCM) to good use by being one of the narrators in the musicals that Unity produced. Nancy had many opportunities to gain experience in the media as Unity appeared on many television and radio shows and in fact had their own show called ‘Unity Sings’.
In 1980, along with her husband, she moved to England after a clear call to full time Christian work and founded and led the internationally known band, Heartbeat. As one of the singers and main speakers, she travelled extensively throughout Britain and abroad seeing people’s lives transformed by the message they carried. During the 80’s, Nancy founded ngm as the organisation around the band Heartbeat. Throughout the 80’s they saw thousands saved and healed through the love and power of God. When Heartbeat finished in 1991, ngm continued and throughout the years, ngm have trained thousands of young people in the arts and discipleship and given them a vision of reaching their full potential. They are based in Thornbury, Bristol, UK, and have an amazing God given £3 million music and arts complex where all their training takes place.

“What an amazing day, the response has been overwhelming. The impact of the honest, personal stories from Nancy created a platform for God to delve deep and challenge every listener. Laughter was the heart of the day, with inspirational teaching , practical help and reflection times, God’s presence was evident throughout and the encouragement, restoration and transformation has been life changing.”

“The Laughter Tour” with Nancy Goudie was quite simply AWESOME! A great day of learning about the benefits of laughter and LOTS of opportunity to put it into practice. With a beautiful sense of the presence of God throughout, we discovered again how the joy of the Lord truly is our strength. Thank you Nancy.”
