Primitive Methodists adopted an existing chapel in 1841.  This first building was demolished in 1958.  The next chapel was also second hand; in 1854 they bought from the Strict Baptists  for £280 Ebenezer chapel which had been built in 1802.  In due course it became a store and has since been demolished.

The chapel in Albert Road which is the current Hinckley Methodist church was opened by the Prims in 1884.  A manse was added in 1888 and Sunday school in  1893, with further development in  1928.
