St Hugh's serves as the Anglican parish church for West Bermondsey, within the Anglican Diocese of Southwark. It is technically a Conventional District within the parish of Southwark Cathedral, with whom it has strong links, but St Hugh's has its own distinctive history and character and behaves like a parish church in its own right. Originally part of the Charterhouse Mission Settlement, one of south-east London's historic Settlements (latterly known as Charterhouse-in-Southwark) St Hugh's Church was in the basement of one of the former Charterhouse Settlement buildings serving the people in the neighbourhood since 1896.

In 2009 the Trustees of Charterhouse -in-Southwark made the radical decision not to continue as a service provider in buildings that were no longer fit for purpose, but to sell the buildings and become a grant-making charity. The building which housed the church was sold, and subsequently demolished. Ecclesiastical law required the church to be replaced, and the new church was dedicated and opened by the Bishop of Southwark on December 8th 2013.  

By God's grace St Hugh's aims:
* to be an active Christian presence in the community
* to make St Hugh's Church a place of prayer and peace in the heart of the inner-city, open and welcoming to all  regardless of race, faith background, gender, age or sexuality
* to encourage and support each other, young and old, in our Christian faith
