There has been a St Hugh's Church in Crosby Row for nearly 120 years. The former church building, which was part of the Rainbow Building owned by Charterhouse-in-Southwark, was demolished when the site it was on was sold for housing. The new church and community room have been built by the new owners of the site, Family Mosaic Housing Association.
