Heart & Vision


ngm loves the arts, loves God and loves people!  They believe they have been created in God’s image and through the arts and by loving people they can show a glimpse of what God is like.

This is a song, written a few years ago in ngm, which carries ngm’s heart to be in the marketplace as artists, who are Christians, living and bringing beauty in the world.


Just singing songs is not enough
To bring Your sunshine down
We need Your revolution
To make a sweeter sound
At times we’re like a side show
That no one comes to see
While all the time our culture
Shapes peoples’ destiny

I hear a distant sound is coming
Playing the piper’s song
Calling us to follow
To where we all belong
To bring Your loving flavour
Within the market place
To show Your image through us
Your beauty and Your grace

I want to dance into the night
Like the stars that shine so bright
I can’t hold back anymore
I want to dance into the night
I wanna live; I wanna fight
I can not stand it anymore

I wanna fly, I wanna soar

You have put me in Your world
You have put me in the world
You have put me in Your world
for life


We believe the church is called to be missional.

Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night…. Philippians 2 (The Message)

Andrew Marin, from his book Love Is An Orientation, wrote this definition of love;

‘Tangible and measurable expressions of one’s unconditional behaviour toward another’

ngm’s heart is to love people whatever their colour, orientation, size, rich, poor, faith or no faith.

We believe God is the ultimate artist and that he loves creativity.  We love helping to develop and release young artists and musicians to fully enjoy being the creatives they were made to be.  We love our world and want to transform and create culture that helps people become more fully alive and more fully human.
