Some in the Puritan movement grew impatient for change in the Church. Shortly after the Hampton Court Conference, little groups of believers began to meet for worship as they felt the Bible taught them — not according to bishops and prayer books. They were determined to obey God even if their nation’s leaders were not. We call this movement Separatism because the groups were intent upon leaving the Church of England.
