Besides the village of Petershagen in West Prussia and Petershagen on the Molotschna, there was also a Mennonite congregation in Petershagen on the Weser in the principality of Minden, Germany (52° 23′ 0″ N, 8° 58′ 0″ E). This congregation is found in the Dutch [[Naamlijst der tegenwoordig in dienst zijnde predikanten der Mennoniten

in de Vereenigde Nederlanden|Naamlijst]] 1766-1810. The congregation is said to have been founded by emigrant Swiss Mennonites. Petrus Staal (Peter Stahli?) was its preacher; the year of his ordination is not stated.  Particulars are not known.
