Social VR worlds and apps are virtual environments in which multiple persons can gather and interact. Many of these can be highly customized. Users can typically select and design characteristics of their avatars. Administrators can usually create the virtual environment, which can include the setting, architecture, decorations, amenities, and activities. As with physical spaces, virtual environments can be designed for different sized gatherings, from a few virtual participants up to thousands.
The flexibility of social VR Worlds and apps makes them ideal for mirroring the various usage spaces within a Church. These venues can include:
- Worship centers
- Fellowship halls
- Youth rooms
- Informal gathering spaces
- Conference rooms
