Woerden, a town in the Dutch province of South Holland, formerly the seat of a Waterlander Men­nonite congregation. There is no information on the origin of this church and only a few accounts on its history. In 1647 it was represented at the Waterlander delegates' meeting at Amsterdam by the dea­con Louris Diricxsz. It disappeared between 1700 and 1730.
