When Queen Elizabeth agreed to accept groups of Walloon refugees in Canterbury she gave them St Alphege's Church in which to worship. After a year this proved to small, so she and the Dean and Chapter allowed them to move into the Cathedral Western Crypt, which at the time was used for the storage of wood and coal. Since then there has always been an independent refugee Calvinish church in the crypt, which worships every Sunday at 15:00 in French.
