In this chapter, we will discuss the ways in which religious and faith-based organizations have experienced the growing pressures towards hybridity during the past decade. We will assess the extent to which they have been influenced by expectations which are specific to them as well as by the general social policy drivers, discussed in Chapter 2, which affect third sector organizations (TSOs) across the board. We will discuss the impact of these pressures on faith-based organizations and consider the extent to which their experience, especially at community level, of resisting or embracing hybridization is different from that of other TSOs. And, finally, we will explore the implications of the distinctive forms that hybridity takes in faith-based organizations for their role in the provision of social welfare.
