Vliedorp, a hamlet in the northeast of the Dutch province of Groningen, where there was a Mennon­ite congregation in the 17th century which belonged to the Groningen Old Flemish branch. This congre­gation, mentioned in a letter of 1626, was represent­ed at the conferences of the Old Flemish held in 1679, 1681, and 1683, in 1679 by its elder Walk Luitjes, who died in that year. The congregation, which was probably small, had merged with the neighboring church of Kloosterburen before 1710 and together with this church with that of Rasquert.
