“Another 10 years on, some extrapolations put the Church of England as no longer functionally extant at all.”

Maybe because they use words like “extant” instead of presenting relevant teaching in normal English to a younger population. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a place for churchy language, but not when you’re trying to make a point to the world at large.

that’s something I think about too — I think we need to retain the beauty and prayerfulness of the original liturgy, but sermons or discussing like this “extant” are not “churchy” language, rather a lame attempt at obfuscation by utilizing obscure words
