Dear SSEC Members,

Postponement of SSEC Annual Conference, "God or Mammon?"

Given the rapid development of restrictions on large public meetings due to concerns about transmission of the Covid-19 virus, the Society for the Study of Early Christianity has decided to postpone its annual conference, originally planned to be held on Saturday May 2nd. The Conference will be re-scheduled later in the year, when conditions are more favourable, most likely around October.

Members who have already booked for the Conference can either cancel their booking for a full refund, or hold their booking until the replacement date is announced. If we do not hear from you, we will presume you want us to hold your booking for you.  Otherwise, please email to organise your refund.

A new date for the Conference will be decided once the situation is more stable, and all members will be notified well in advance. Details will be made available by email, on the Society Facebook page, and the Society website. (Please note that the Website is temporarily not functional: we hope to have it back in operation in the near future.)

If you would like to contact us about this, or other matters,please send an email to

Yours sincerely, Karyn Young
for the SSEC Executive
