Alive Publishing is a Catholic publishing house. The company, which has charitable status, was incorporated in 1996 with the launch of Bible Alive, a Catholic scripture magazine, rooted in the daily and Sunday liturgy of the Catholic Church.

As a Catholic publishing company we look to scriptures, the living tradition of the church, the saints both ancient and new, the teaching of the Second Vatican Council, Pope John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI for inspiration, guidance and light. Our bespoke publications, including Catholic magazines, books and newspapers are rooted in a vision which is informed by the Holy Spirit, guided by the teaching authority of the Catholic Church and strengthened by daily conversion, repentance and prayer.

Alive Publishing produces Catholic Today, the Catholic newspaper for the Birmingham Archdiocese, and the new Faith Today magazine.

Walk with Me is a prayer and scripture journey for the seasons of Advent, Lent and Easter.
