Paul & Janet WilliamsMay 1111

We are Paul and Janet Williams, mum and dad to two teenage girls, Isabelle and Maddie.  We have a passion for seeing King's function as a family, each person connected, supported, encouraged and loved.  The primary means of achieving this is through the network of groups of friends which meet across the city every week - groups are for everyone!
