People & places Europe France Aquitaine Chaplaincy Donate Fundraise The Chaplaincy of Aquitaine first came into being in 1825, when a church community was established in Bordeaux. In south-west France it seems that there have always been people seeking to worship God in the English language, and so for some 185 years we have been able, as the Psalmist puts it, to ‘sing the Lord's song in a foreign land’.(Psalm 137:4).
