Nancy Goudie heads up the creative and innovative charity ngm. She was born in Ayr, Scotland where 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 which was founded by her husband, Ray and his brother, Derek. 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, Ray and Nancy moved to England after a clear call to full time Christian work. They founded and led the internationally known band, Heartbeat. As one of the singers and main speakers, Nancy travelled extensively throughout Britain and abroad seeing peoples’ lives transformed by the message they carried. During the 80’s, Ray and Nancy changed the name of the overall work to ngm (New Generation Music) with Heartbeat being one of the bands under the umbrella of ngm. 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 in God. They taught everyone who joined ngm how to live by faith and depend on God for all their finances both individually and corporately. They are based in Thornbury, Bristol, UK, and have an amazing God given £3 million music and arts complex where all their work, rehearsals and training takes place.

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.”
