Only one branch of the Church exists in Luxembourg, a small nation located between Germany, France, and Belgium. The first formal proselyting began in 1963 when missionaries from the Franco-Belgian mission entered the country. A branch was formed in the mid-1960s, but it was discontinued in 1971. Luxembourg became part of the Belgium Brussels Mission in 1974. A branch was again organized in 1988. In 1994 Luxembourg was placed under the Metz France District. At the beginning of the year 2000 the country had 155 members living in 1 branch.
