Goadby has a Church of England Parish church, St John the Baptist, which is of 13th-Century origin. The church was extensively renovated in the 19th Century. Services are held on the first Sunday of every month. The church is part of a group of churches ministered to from Billesdon. Every year, a fundraising fete is held in Goadby on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday weekend to provide funds for the Church.
Goadby has no industry, and is notable chiefly for its stud farm, at which the celebrated race horse Desert Orchid was foaled.
"Goadby, Leicester, is a chapelry in Billesdon parish near a branch of the river Welland. This is annexed to the vicarage of Billesdon, in the diocese of Peterborough. The church was restored in 1854."
