A REPLICA of the Turin Shroud will be on show at a Droitwich Spa church.

The Sacred Heart Church, Worcester Road, will display a copy of the historical artefact at 7.30pm on Wednesday, June 27.

The shroud has previously been displayed along with scientific data and examination results at Worcester Cathedral for three weeks.

The original Turin Shroud is a linen cloth that Christians believe bears the image of Jesus Christ and was used to wrap his body following his crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy.
