Membership of Future for Religious Heritage is important for AAiC, especially as the profile of religious heritage has been raised with the European Commission and the European Parliament as part of European Cultural history. The Director is a member of the Governance and Nominations Committee of FRH. This year the Annual General Meeting was held in Brussels in early October and next year the FRH Conference will be held in Vicenza, Italy with the title of 'Pilgrimage'.

AAiC is beginning a new project with EU partners in the Veneto region of Italy. Centred on the beautiful Abbey of Follina and the Castle of St Martin, Vittorio Veneto, the project will be opening up the area's wonderful churches to visitors, with trails, summer schools and places to stay.
