Algemeen Doopsgezind Weekblad (Periodical)
The Algemeen Doopsgezind Weekblad (now entitled Doopsgezind NL) is a publication of the Algemene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit in the Netherlands. Its first issue appeared on 5 October 1946. It was preceded by De Zondagsbode, which was ordered to cease publication by the German occupation authorities, the last number being that of 21 June 1942. After the liberation several numbers of a small paper, De Noodbrug, were published. It was largely through the efforts of C. Nijdam, at the time chairman of the Algemene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit (ADS), that the Weekblad came into being; its purpose was to form a bond among all the Mennonite congregations in the Netherlands. In January 2006 the title of the publication was changed to Doopsgezind NL.
