As part of the Walsall COVID-19 Community Champions programme, several organisations have been working with Walsall for All and other partners to raise awareness of the COVID-19 vaccination, encourage uptake and reduce the spread of the virus.


One of these groups is New Testament Church of God Walsall. The champions (along with their two Ministers) have led by example by sharing messages on video.

As a community church, the leaders lead example by having the vaccine. We support the vaccine for the benefit of everyone.
