You can now pay your rent over the phone


Paying your rent over the phone used to mean ringing Allpay, but now Elim Housing can take payments directly. Effective from August 2014, you can pay your rent by ringing our finance team on 01454 411172 and pressing option 5. You’ll get through to a member of the Elim team here at head office, just let us know how much you want to pay and provide us with your credit or debit card details.  We’ll give you an authorisation code while you’re still on the line followed by a printed receipt that will be posted to you.

When you pay your rent over the phone, your payment will go through immediately and will be logged here at head office.

Unfortunately we cannot credit tenant accounts over the phone. If you have agreed with one of our housing officers that an overpayment has been made on your rent, we will instead send you a check or refund you with a BACS payment.

Elim development unearths pieces of Bristol’s history



A 700-800 year old piece of pottery was among artefacts found in Elim’s Wade Street development site. Works began on the development of 19 new Elim homes in Wade Street this week, but not before Elim carried out an archaeological dig that unearthed a treasure trove of Bristol’s history. Ceramic artefacts included pieces of clay tobacco pipes, Somerset redware, Bristol glazed stoneware and local red earthenware.  Also among the discoveries were the well-preserved remains of 18th and 19th century buildings. This included the outline of 32 Wade Street, a terrace house built in around 1710, which was still identifiable by its cellar along with the old cobbled lane and pavement slabs just outside.

Elim has handed over the ceramic artefacts to Bristol Museum and art galleries. But the cobbled lane outside 32 Wade Street remains, perhaps to be discovered again in another few hundred years. In the meantime Elim residents will be using the land to create some new historical memories.

The Wade Street development will consist of five houses and fourteen flats, two of these will be shared ownership and the rest will provide affordable rents. Works are planned to be completed by September 2015. Watch this space!
