Laud disapproves of the democratic way that the Huguenot churches are organised, with their Consistories and Colloquies. He also believes strongly that everyone throughout England should worship in the same way as everyone else.
He wants the Huguenot churches to use a French translation of the Anglican prayerbook for their services. He also orders that all descendants of immigrant families should worship at their local Anglican churches, instead of continuing to form a separate community.
The Huguenot churches are reluctant to accept that Laud has any right to give them orders. They are determined to go on worshipping in the way they always have. A long dispute begins.
