Anjum is a village in the northeast of the Dutch province of Friesland, where a Mennonite church once existed. Leenaert Bouwens baptized at least 159 persons here, according to his list; there was later here a branch of the Jan Jacobsz group which had a church of its own, but which died out in 1729.
