His marriage into one of New York's most prominent families gave him immediate access to many influential members of the establishment. While in Nova Scotia, he used Halifax as a base until May 1785, and he was able to so increase the membership that Philip Marchington, a wealthy merchant, built a private chapel for Methodist services the following year. When Marchington closed its doors because he was expelled from the society, the congregation built Zoar chapel in 1792. After May 1785 Garrettson began a series of preaching engagements in Windsor, Cornwallis, and the surrounding areas.
The quality of the work performed and of the administration in general was equally responsible for the lack of growth. Both the British authorities and the local leaders supplied ineffective supervision and discipline. This was perhaps most evident in the stationing of the missionaries. Black and his successor, Bennett, never carried the requisite authority or personal influence to administer the connexion effectively. Each missionary felt entitled to decide for himself where and how to serve. After 1786 appointments were made by a local conference of ministers, but these decisions were altered by whim, weather, or local preferences.
After his leader's death in 1791, he became the dominant voice in British Methodism. Between 1784 and 1804, Coke made nine short visits to the United States, helping to provide continuity between British and American Methodism and settling internal disputes over the respective powers of Bishop Asbury and the General Conference established in 1792. However, he was needed in Britain and was never able or willing to supply more than token supervision for the Methodist Episcopal Church in America. Although he and Asbury respected each other, they disagreed on the best strategy for expansion, and Asbury was not prepared to relinquish his control to a visiting Englishman.
