Krommeniedijk, a hamlet in the Dutch province of North Holland, was in the earliest times the home of numerous Anabaptists. In 1534 no fewer than 69 persons of this community were accused of "Anabaptism." In that year Jan Dirks Walen (or Walig) and Cornelis Luytgens of Krommeniedijk suffered a martyr's death by burning at The Hague. A congregation was organized here early, belonging to the Waterlander branch, but it always remained small and soon joined the neighboring church at Knollendam in supporting a minister, Simon Kalyerboer, who served 1786-1828; in 1804 the two congregations formally merged. The combined congregation had only 14 members at that time. In 1847 a new meetinghouse was built in Krommeniedijk; it acquired an organ in 1897. Services were held here by the Knollendam pastor until 1921, when the building was sold.
