The Vereinigung bayerischer Mennonitengemeinden is an association of all Mennonite congregations located in Bayern (Bavaria) in 1922, with the exception of the Ingolstadt congregation but including the congregations in what at that time was the Bavarian-Palatinate area. It was incorporated in 1926 and 1928. The 19 members in 1928 were Branchweilerhof, Deutschhof, Donauwörth (today: Augsburg) Eichstock, Eppstein, Ernstweiler (today: Zweibrücken), Friedelsheim, Kohlhof, Kühbörncheshof, Ludwigshafen, München, Neudorferhof, Obersülzen, Regensburg, Sembach, Trappstadt (today: Bad Königshofen im Grabfeld), Weierhof, Würzburg (Würzburg-Giebelstadt) and Ixheim (today: Zweibrücken). The association was joined by the Nürnberg congregation in 1972 and the Ingolstadt congregation in 1979. According to a new 1987 constitution only the churches located in Bavaria, i.e., Augsburg, Bad Königshofen im Grabfeld, Eichstock, Ingolstadt, München, Nurnberg, Regensburg, and Würzburg would be members of the association. The association was an associate member of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft christlicher Kirchen in Bayern (Task Force of Christian Churches in Bavaria).
