Reverend Jan Gould, who is due to take the church service for victims of the Cardiff hit-and-runs this evening, has pleaded with people not to "harbour revenge" against the perpetrator:
"If people aren't able to forgive, they will never really move on from this because harbouring revenge and anger, in the end, can only be destructive.
She added: "We're here really to give the community a chance to just come together, to stand shoulder to shoulder in our shock and in our grief, and just try to encourage one another to support one another.
"My emotions did come out this morning, along with everyone else's, and that was no bad thing. In one way it was difficult, but in another it was a privilege to be able to try and help people in that way."
The Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones MP, has paid tribute to the police and other emergency services for their response to Friday's hit-and-run attacks.
Kevin Brennan, who will be giving a reading at the church service this evening, said the attacks had been a "terrible experience" and a "great shock" for the community in Ely.
Kevin Brennan, Labour MP for Cardiff West, said the community in Ely wanted justice for Karina Menzies, her family and all those affected by Friday's shocking hit-and-run attacks.
Adam Lewis said the impact of the crash was "overwhelming" but said he was just thankful his family were still alive.
"You don't expect a big white van to come and smack you off the pavement," he told Sky News, adding, "Why someone would ever want to do that I will never know."
Mr Lewis said "our hearts go out" to the family of Karina Menzies, who was killed in a separate attack during the hit-and-run rampage, and admitted: "We are so relieved we're still ok."
Mr Lewis said his "brave" partner will have an operation to put pins in her leg after breaking her fibula and tibula in the crash, while a hairline fracture in her ankle will be strapped. She also wounded her left hip. He added that his two-year-old "had been incredibly brave."
Adam Lewis, who saw his partner and baby daughter hit by the rampaging van in Cardiff, has spoken of the moment the vehicle smashed into his family.
With two-year-old Amelia May sat next to him bearing heavy facial scars from the collision, Mr Lewis told Sky News his parter Annie was pushing their daughter's pushchair on the pavement when "all of a sudden we got hit behind by the van."
He added: "It was too late he just smashed right into us."
The father, who was knocked to the floor by the van's wing mirror, said: "Unfortunately my partner and our baby bore the brunt of it."
He said Ms Lewis "buckled" when the vehicle struck and "just flew" with her and Amelia "catapulted" into the air.
The family of Karina Menzies, who was killed in a hit-and-run van attack in Cardiff, have released the following statement:
"Karina was a lovely girl. She lived for her kids and her brothers and sisters and everything she did was for her family. She was a good friend to everyone and was well thought of in the community. She will be sorely missed by everyone."
The brother of the woman killed in a hit-and-run attack in Cardiff said his sister died trying to save the lives of her children.
Craig Menzies described the moment the van careered towards Karina Menzies and her children. He told Radio 5 Live:
Mr Menzies said the attack was "a waste of a life" and said his sister was "the world to me".
