How will the deprecation of Access Services effect using Sharepoint in the future?
Is it still worth while using Sharepoint as a backend for Access frontends or are we better of using SQL as the backend?

These are two separate issues.

Linking to SharePoint lists was available as far back as Access 2003. That wasn't changed and won't be.

That said, the only realistic reason I can see for using SharePoint lists as a back end is in a scenario where you need to support disconnected updates and automatic synchronization.

Thanks George, I'm going to be upgrading my office 365 to Bus. Prem. so that I can get Sharepoint again, and I just wanted to make sure I wasn't wasting my time and money.

Now that I think about it, in fact, one of the options for exporting your data from an AWA is to push them into SharePoint lists. There's even a button on the AWA page to do that.
