This year, it was decided to hold the annual Service for Peace on Queens Square as a more central location than Llwyn Isaf. The service was also intended to be inclusive: inter-faith and extra-faith. Many passing shoppers stopped to join in.

Everyone was invited to join in with the prayer:

Heal my wounded heart.
Grant me the courage
to change my heart.
Let peace live in my heart.
Fill me with compassion
for those suffering in war.
Help me to care for those in war.
Help me bring peace to those in war.
Help me to stop wars.
Help leaders to stop wars.
Fill me with peace and justice.
Help me to work for peace and justice.
Let there be peace with justice
among all peoples.
