Due to ill-health. 
Father of Rev Bonnie Robinson
Convener International Relations Committee and the Medic Ethics Committee.
Owen was born with dislocated hips and a curved spine.  As a result Owen's life was
coloured by constant physical pain and by the fact that walking was an act of
deliberation and effort.  However, early in life he determined not to allow his disability
to get in his way and he went on to serve the Church with diligence and to achieve
success in many spheres.
Secondary education in Auckland; Auckland University graduated with MA; entered
Theological Hall Dunedin.  
Owen's early Church life was spent in Mt Eden parish where he took a full part in the
Bible Class. This interest and support for youth work continued throughout his ministry.
At the Theological Hall he was involved with the Student Christian Movement, and
while a study leader he met Margaret Smith, whom he later married.
The characteristics of Owen's ministry were a concern for good worship, a delight in
scholarship, and a professional approach to the pastoral and administrative aspects of
ministry. Owen took worship seriously, he studied liturgy, and was open to the many
strands of the Church, reformed, catholic, & orthodox.  He sought out and used many
different orders of Communion and baptism, introduced new types of music and used
visual mediums such as slides, films and drama in his services.
Owen was a scholar who took seriously the need to keep abreast of developments in
theology & Church practice. He read widely, often requesting reading lists of the latest
theology from Professors at the Theological Hall.  He also kept up with counselling
theory and practice, and developed interests in spirituality and spiritual direction.  All
this bore fruit in his wise and generous counsel of parish members and others in the
wider community who sought him out.
Owen took a full part in each Parish he served in, and also in Assembly. His
convenership of the Assembly International Relations Committee brought the work
of that Committee into prominence and encouraged the Church to become involved in
world affairs.  Owen was acknowledged by the Church as one of the best informed
people about international affairs. In 1962 Owen was awarded a scholarship to Union
Seminary.   He was away for a year, and his experiences at Union and on his travels
home through US, Scotland, the Taize Community, and India had a significant influence
on his ministry.
One of the last influences of his time at Union was an appreciation of the need for
inter-faith dialogue.  This came to fruition when he was asked to represent Wellington
Presbytery on the Council of Christians and Jews.  Owen's work on this committee is
Warmly remembered by all its members, and the Jewish community arranged for a tree
to be planted in Israel in memory of Owen's commitment to Jewish-Christian
understanding. After taking early retirement from parish ministry, Owen worked as the
first executive officer for the Council of Christian Social Services.  He built the
organization into a credible and respected voice that was listened to by politicians
and policy makers.  When he retired from the Christian Council Owen worked as a
Lecturer and course co-ordinator in the school of Public Relations at Wellington
Polytech. In 1990 Owen was appointed chair of the Wellington Area Health Board's
medical ethics committee. In fulfilling the duties of this position Owen received much
recognition for his wisdom and sound judgement.  He developed standards and
protocols that are recognized and used nationally.  Owen continued to be consulted
on ethical matters until just a few weeks before he died. (from Obit.)

Nuhaka School, Gov’t teacher  1922
Maungapohatu 1925, Gov’t Teacher, with Miss Renee Paulger as her Assistant.
Rep 1936: for many years a valuable worker to the mission.
Miss Roseveare  responded in 1922 to a call by the Maori Mission Committee for teachers
to take up appointments in Maori Schools. She soon became an unpaid Missionary of the
Presbyterian Church assisting the Rev AR Chisholm in many ways, taking Sunday School,
holding women’s meetings and teaching the Maori children to sing hymns. Joined in 1923
by Miss Rene Paulger as her Assistant, they both accepted the late Rev JG Laughton’s
invitation in 1924 to take over the School at Maungapohatu. As the Government had taken
over the School, both went in as State Teachers. Their work was, however, very much
Missionary orientated, with much work being carried out amongst the children in Rua
Kenana’s stronghold. The trip inland to Maungapohatu from Ruatahuna was an arduous
journey, the only means of access being on horseback along a narrow pack trail which
crossed two mountain ranges and necessitated the crossing of many fords.
Accepted an appointment about 1928 to Lake Rotoma School. Although outside the area
served by the Presbyterian Church Maori Mission, she carried on her Missionary work.
She also regularly attended the Easter meetings of the Maori Mission workers and after her
marriage in 1937 and a move to Waverley, she still retained her interest in the Maori Mission
work of the Church. After the death of her husband and a move to Auckland, she made an
annual pilgrimage to the May meeting of the Maori Synod at Ohope.
After a final move to Mosgiel, she still retained a keen interest in the Turakina Maori Girls
School and the Maori children she had taken into her home and brought up.

their training at the Theological Hall in Dunedin.
