The Church of St. Joseph is in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark.

Historical notes on English Catholic missions, Kelly, Bernard W. (Rev), 1907:
"This church, which is in the Early English style, was opened in May 1881. The seating capacity is for 200 persons. A handsome decorated iron rood screen, with figures of Our Lord on the Cross, St. Joseph and Our Lady, separates the chancel from the nave. The peal of bells is by Messrs. Lewis. There is a memorial brass in the church to Mrs. Garcia, a benefactress. The handsome lichgate at the entrance of the church was erected in 1882. The tabernacle and massive altar candlesticks were the gift of Mrs. Lyne-Stephens. The stations of the Cross arc by Westlake, R.A. Mr. F. A. Walters was the architect of the building. The consecration took place Tuesday, July 24, 1883, by the Bishop of Portsmouth, Dr. Vertue, in place of the Bishop of Southwark. The mission is served by the Jesuit Fathers."

Since this was written the church has been extended and reordered, and is no longer served by the Jesuits.
