Just so you know where we're coming from!
This website is run by a committed Bible believing Christian from the UK. Unbelievably this site started up fully in January 2001. Its motto is 'Christian counter-culture youth work resources'. We are Holy Spirit-filled believers in Jesus who are passionate about young people, discipleship and relevant communication of God's truth - his Word, the Bible. Thanks to Andy H and especially Ben L who have helped with a number of sketches, games, sessions, ideas and more. This website is for the fame of Jesus and for his name alone.
This site subscribes to the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith.
Myfishbites.com has a Biblical Christian ethos based on an evangelical charismatic Christian faith. We work with all Christian denominations and all people (regardless of religion, no religion, lifestyle, race, gender, sexuality) to try and demonstrate integrity, quality, reliability and Christ's love through this site and our lifestyle. What we aim to present on this website is God's truth in love. Where we get that wrong, we're sorry!

Early Myfishbites - back in 2001 with the internet in its infancy !!
Myfishbites strongly believes in not just giving money and time, but in being whole life disciples who cheerfully and joyfully give, as the Bible says, as led by the Holy Spirit. The projects we support can be found on the links page.
