SAGE (Sustainable Action Group for the Environment) was formed in 2018 and this group has been one of the most active groups in the church.
It has initiated and hosted a number of environmental courses for the community on such themes as: Electric vehicles, Plastics in the ocean, Air quality/wood smoke, and Recycling. The group has also sponsored online Drawdown Solutions Action courses.
There is a commitment to buy Fair Trade tea and coffee for church events and to avoid using plastic cups for serving coffee and tea.
The church recycles paper and other products and composts kitchen waste.
This group facilitated the installation of heat pumps for the building in 2022 and 2023, to replace the existing gas furnace. This project was assisted with a grant from the Faithful Footprints project of the United Church of Canada.
In 2023 the SAGE group, together with the Comox Valley Unitarian Justice Committee, is hosting a series of Interactive Forums on local climate action. The second one is on Monday, April 3.
