“Ian and Mae Cairns joined the church’s overseas staff at a time when the old style missionary had given place to the ecumenical collegue. They faced daunting challenges in their early years at Bandung. At a time of acute ecomnomic difficulty and political tension in Indonesia, Ian went about his ministry, and the family about their daily lives, in the face of real danger and physical hardship. This helped them form deep and lasting bonds of trust and friendship with students and a wider circle of people. Ian Cairns developed an effective ministry in the Sundanese Church of West Java and, through his ecumenical ministry, within many other Indonesian churches.  
[In parish ministry both at First Church Invercarill and later at First Church Dunedin] Ian Cairns’ unyielding conviction that ministry must include the marginalised, caused tensions within traditional congregations.
Dr Cairns’ pastoral ministry was marked by careful, challenging, and always well prepared worship and teaching. His visiting was dilligent and his contacts with people were very personal, and maintained even at times when he had every reason to ease back in the interests of his own health. He held to issues of justice with unyielding determination and with an eye for practical engagement. He made commitments to multiculturalism, to use of inclusive language, to ecumenism, to respect and openness between religious communities….
Early in the 1990’s Ian Cairns became involved in the Sea of Faith movement, and in the Dunedin group his meditation and studies were an integral part of members’ exploration of spirituality in current society.
Completed a commentary on Mark’s Gospel entitled ‘Mark of a Non-Realist’ in retirement.
Even in retirement he lived out again his conviction that Christian faith must be demonstrated in the practical struggles of daily life, and in solidarity with those least able to promote their own well-being.“ (from Obit.)
