Haren, near Groningen city, Dutch province of Groningen, the seat of a Mennonite fellowship (kring) of members of the Groningen congregation. A first meeting was held here in 1923; an occasional service was held in 1936; a ladies' circle was founded in December 1936. In 11 April 1937, the church began holding its services in a building belonging to the Liberal Reformed Church. At first services  were conducted by Pastor Knipscheer  of Groningen. In 1939 the church board of Groningen  appointed a minister specifically for the care of its members living at Haren: J. Meerburg Snarenberg 1939-40, J. S. Postma 1940-42, A. H. van Drooge 1946-51, and since 1951 Miss C. E. Offerhaus. When the group was founded in 1937 its membership numbered 97; it was 102 in 1954.

In 1967 the congregation built its own meetinghouse at Nieuwe Stationsweg 1.
