This text focuses on the development of Methodism in Nova Scotia, with attention paid to the towns of Shelburne and Birchtown. It looks at the issue over control of a religious organization, which in the late 18th century, John Wesley appeared to have lost. Wesley embraced the efforts at Birchtown because he supported the idea of freedom for black people and opposed slavery. Some historians maintain that by ordaining lay elders to cross the Atlantic John Wesley did manage to establish the means by which the Methodist Episcopal Church could organize itself into a significant religious body in the US and Canada.
