Warnings that the parish is under threat date back decades, as far back as the early 20th century. But are claims that it is now being dismantled accurate?

As the C of E emerges from the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, exacerbating acute financial pressures in many dioceses, can the parish survive? And where does it fit in a mixed ecology, in which other forms of church are seeking to turn around decades of numerical decline?
