This is not original to the church, but was dedicated in 1929 to celebrate the semi-jubilee of the serving minister Rev D D Rees.
Of white/pink Italian Alabaster the reredos is sunk within the east wall immediately under the triple window and depicts the Lord’s Supper with the arrangement of the Disciples on either side of our Lord. It is similar to the very famous painting by da Vinci. The slight difference, in comparison, is Judas sitting with his head bent and clasping a money bag in his hand. It is a replica of a reredos gifted by King Edward V11 to a church in the Isle of Wight in memory of Queen Victoria. The Kirk Session obtained Royal permission to have it copied. Although somewhat Catholic in taste it is admired by us all and is a very important focal point of the chancel.

GIFT OF REREDOS TO CHURCH
A handsome gift has been erected in Ardrossan Parish Church, Saltcoats, in the form of Reredos, and this forms a splendid addition to the appropriate decorative points in the building.The donor is the Rev. D.D.Rees, parish minister,in commemoration of his semi-jubilee, and the work was carried out by Messrs R.L.Boulton & Sons, Cheltenham.
The Reredos has been executed in coloured Derbyshire alabaster, with a sculptured group of The Last Supper and carved panels on each side in white alabaster. The work has been treated in a style to match the Norman architecture of the church, and the group is secretly lighted with electric light.
