Durgerdam, a small town near Amsterdam, in the Dutch province of North Holland, was an Anabaptist center as early as 1534. Shortly after there must have been a congregation, of which the martyr Willem Jansz, executed at Amsterdam on 12 March 1569, was a member. Leenaert Bouwens baptized 11 persons here about 1565. Later the congregation joined the Waterlander Conference in North Holland. In 1675 the membership numbered 100. In 1687 the church burned down, but was rebuilt soon after. Continuously during the 18th century there was no minister and the membership decreased rapidly. In 1727, 1733, and 1736 the small congregation generously contributed to the Dutch Committee of Foreign Needs to help the Prussian Mennonites. In 1817 the congregation was dissolved; an amount of 6,000 guilders that was the property of the church was turned over to the Waterlander (Rijper) Societeit.
