Christoffel Alberts Wensing (Wenzing) of Groningen, Netherlands, died there 23 August 1703, married in 1682 to Antje Mennes of Appingedam, was a member of the local Groningen Old Flemish congregation. When he began to attend Collegiant meetings he had to answer before the elders of the church (15 February, May, 2 June 1685, 17 January, 25-28 July, 24 October, 1686). In several meetings Wensing defended Collegiant views, particularly on baptism by immersion, denying that the Old Flemish were the only true church, objecting to marital avoidance as practiced by the Old Flemish and the ban in case of marriage with a nonmember. Gradually other members of his congregation also began to worship with the Collegiants. Finally Wensing was banned on 30 May 1687, and the other adherents of Collegiantism soon after. Wensing, who is said to have been highly esteemed by his friends, wrote an account of his relations with the Collegiants and his banning by the Old Flemish; this manuscript is found in the Amsterdam Mennonite Archives.
