Donate
Like the vast majority of churches our main income has to come from voluntary giving and donations, mainly from regular members of our congregation and also from donations by visitors.

If you would like to donate, either on a regular basis or as a one-off gift, the Church will be extremely grateful.
Payments can be made by BACS -  'Alpheton & Shimpling PCC'; Sort Code 60-04-16; Acc No 56293658.
If you are a UK tax payer, we benefit greatly if you sign a gift aid declaration stating your name, address and that you are a UK tax payer. If you want to do so just email Sue - s.fahiewilson@gmail.com   

Wills and Bequests
We also express our immense gratitude to the many who have made provision in their wills to 'Alpheton and Shimplingthorne PCC' to support the ministry of the church and the building. 

Stained Glass Window at Shimpling
Many of the fine stained glass windows at Shimpling Church are from the eighteen hundreds although a few fragments of much older glass remain. However the East window above the altar which is Victorian and some of the stonework above is in dire need of repair. The estimate is in the tens of thousands of pounds so any donation for this purpose would be very gratefully received

Organ refurbishment at Alpheton
Alpheton Church is not only a historic building, but it is also a link to the people who have lived, worked and died in the village over hundreds of years. As well as regular running costs, we often have to find large sums to repair and restore the church. The organ at Alpheton church is in need of a full 'service' which is estimated that the maintenance work will cost approximately £4,000

Donate for Restoration Work
If you are able to make a contribution that would be very much appreciated. Please make clear if it is for the organ at Alpheton or for the window work at Shimpling. Payment can be made by BACS -  'Alpheton & Shimpling PCC'; Sort Code 60-04-16; Acc No 56293658. If you are a UK tax payer, we benefit greatly if you sign a gift aid declaration stating your name, address and that you are a UK tax payer. If you want to do so just email Sue - s.fahiewilson@gmail.com 

Other Ways to Donate
If you are visiting the church you can contribute by cash or cheque made payable to Alpheton & Shimpling PCC and leave your contribution in the wooden box by the main door. Alternatively you can make one off payments by BACS or set up a standing order from your bank account to the church's account above. If your payment reference identifies who you are and you have signed a gift aid declaration, the church will then be able to claim  25% gift aid.          

Thank you for reading this, and be assured that Alpheton & Shimpling Churches will be very grateful for any donation, whether one-off or regular, that you make.
