Church of United Ministry closes
June 28, 2019
The second-floor space at the corner of Mills and Colonial was a bastion of Orlando DIY weirdness and excellence for several years (former incarnations included Anime Fun Shop and A-Space). But late June saw the final event, an all-star local showcase and dance party that included TV Dinner and Bacon Grease. Under musician and arch-conceptualist Jason Kimmins' quasi-religious branding, C.U.M. Worship repped the Good Word and hosted fashion shows, karaoke nights, touring bands, local music, DJ nights and more. The closing of this DIY bastion was very much the end of an era for Mills 50.
