Gainsborough Centenary Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1910 - marking the Centenary of the Primitive Methodist Connexion. It accommodated 500 and was rebuilt in 1994.

The chapel was situated on Ropery Road at its junction with Mercer Road.  It closed in 1999.

On Google Street View in 2009 the chapel appears little changed but its use is not clear.
